Have you ever adored a children’s book so much you couldn’t wait to share it with someone? This happens to me often and I usually end up sending an email about it, walking the book over to another teacher’s class or sharing on planning time. But sometimes I wish I could share it with all of the kids, teachers and parents that pass by my room each day too! I created a unique way to share these fabulous books called “A Book We Adore.” Each month I display a book cover (or a picture of the cover) on my door. (Did you see our Book Bite last week for this book? We can't get enough of Bob Shea!)
I also write a few
words about the book (like a mini review), which will allow passersby to quickly
read about it. I include small cards with the title and author, so those
interested can remember the book for library check-out or purchase from a store
or school book order. Some publishers or authors have fun printables on their
websites to accompany the book you’ve chosen. You can print those as well and
hang some copies on your door.
If you love books like I do, you may find
yourself changing out your display more than once a month! Happy Reading!
