Hello December: Favorite Books and Exciting News

Hope you all had a nice first day back after Thanksgiving break. Fortunately for me it went very smoothly. I am going to be sharing some of my favorite Christmas/Holiday/Winter books over the next few weeks. I'm featuring 2 books that are childhood favorites. 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. I can probably recite this without even looking. This version has black and white illustrations and is just beautiful. Click Here to find it on Amazon 

Here is The Twelve days of Christmas-yes just like the song. The illustrations in this version by Laurel Long are absolutely gorgeous. Each one is more detailed than the next. Within each illustration are hidden images, which will keep you flipping through again and again. Click Here to find it on Amazon

9 Ladies Dancing

2 Turtle Doves

4 Calling Birds

And now some exciting news. I was voted by my school as Teacher of the Year!

Lots of work ahead of me as I prepare to go to district, but I am beyond humbled to have this opportunity to represent my wonderful school !!
I will be sharing more favorite books later this week!
