The Shoemaker's Dream My mother reads this book to her children and her students every year. A beautiful depiction of how we should treat other people.

I have noticed in my many years as a childcare worker, and a now a parent, that children are deeply touched by the books they read. This is why I like to read them books that teach important life lessons. During the many years that I have been reading books to children, these have stood out as some of the very best.

Books that Celebrate the Bond Between Mother and Son

Books about Mothers and Sons. From beautiful to super cute these books are perfect for a mother and son to read together. Great for Mother's Day or any time of the year.

A great book about a strong woman! This Biography of Patiene Wright is a MUST read (I was hooked from the beginning). This would be a great book to assign students in upper elementary for a book report.

The Polar Express (Read-Aloud)

The Polar Express OF course I must put this on my list of books for the classroom! I will read this book around Christmas for my students!

Have your child's teacher sign the book "Oh The Places You'll Go" at the end of each school year and then give it to him or her at their graduation. Also makes a great baby shower gift!! LOVE THIS IDEA!

#2 blog post of the year: tell the difference between tattling and reporting. also a free poster to remind students of what the book teaches! this works people! :)
