Dog Songs: Poems, by Mary Oliver; POETRY
LITTLE DOG’S RHAPSODY IN THE NIGHT He puts his cheek against mine and makes small, expressive sounds. And when I’m awake, or awake enough he turns upside down, his four paws in the air and his eyes dark and fervent. “Tell me you love me,” he says. “Tell me again.” Could there be a sweeter arrangement? Over and over he gets to ask. I get to tell.
Dog Songs: Poems, by Mary Oliver The poems are about or addressed to Mary Oliver's dogs, who sometimes reply. They are affectionate meditations on the bond between people and dogs. Oliver's poems are written in direct, ordinary language perfect for reading aloud in school and, as I do, to the mirror. Dog Songs is full of themes that would work for writing projects and improvisations. I can imagine young children performing scenes between pets and their human companions.
Mary Oliver: Dog Songs. Will be a great read for any dog lover.

In this story, readers get to visit local farmers, fill baskets with fresh fruits and vegetables, and then head home to cook a feast, all with goodies from the farmers’ market! Featuring Stefan Page’s graphic art, this delightful board book is filled with bold splashes of color and unique patterns.
We've been waiting for a children's book about the Farmer's Market! Here it is by Stefan Page. We're Going to the Farmers' Market is a board book packed with bright, perfect illustrations. It is pretty simple but great for discussion with older children with a healthy food message.

Two Writing Teachers (blog) and Slice of Life Story Challenge How to write your slice of life story: *Choose an every day moment from your life *focus on the details that make it stand out for you (people, dialogue, action, feelings, sensory details) *Begin "in the moment" and try to recapture the scene. The key is using your thoughts and feelings. Try to improve each time, challenge yourself.
