Madeline book written by Ludwig Bemelmans's includes cheerful and rhythmic text with illustrations that depict Madeline's life in Paris and a her troublesome appendix.
12 Empowering Children's books for young girls. The books we read as children can have a huge impact on the weird humans we eventually become. Our beliefs, aspirations, and morals can all be at...
'In an old house in Paris that was covered in vines lived twelve little girls in two straight lines...' Something is not right with little Madeline. Her friends are sad when she goes to hospital to have her appendix removed. But they cheer up when see her impressive scar! The small but feisty heroine, Madeline, and her charming Parisian world have been loved by children and adults alike for seventyears.
Madeline books were so special to me. I would love to read them to the little girls I know.
Favorite book my mother read to me when I was little...I was Madeline.

Madeline, great kids book FIAR book
Because I dress pretty outrageous most days, the kids seemed to be more surprised by my hair than anything else. I think I heard an equal amount of "Did you cut your hair?!" and "Hey, it's a giant Madeline!" hat and Madeline book: thrifted; dress: DearCreatures; tights and skirt: Target; shoes: Clarks; big red bow: added by me Bonjour, Trick or Treaters! Despite the fact that we have a no-costume rule at school, I decided to dress as Madeline today. It's educational, fun and gave me an excuse to pick up this super sweet dress. Which I wore as a tunic because, well, I didn't want to turn my lesson into the Madeline Peep-Show, if you know what I mean. “In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines Lived twelve little girls in two straight lines In two straight lines they broke their bread And brushed their teeth and went to bed. They left the house at half past nine In two straight lines in rain or shine- The smallest one was Madeline.” I had so much fun reading Madeline to the kids especially since we are still on our Parisian kick. I used this amazing bulletin board created by one of my practicum students. Under each leaf, there were facts all about the Eiffel Tower that the kids enjoyed learning about. I added my own fun facts. For example, we learned that the Tower is 59 giraffes tall and as heavy as 1,341 elephants. That's one big Iron Lady. I adore the illustrations in this book. They are the perfect mix of messy and retro. I did some research on the author behind the Madeline books that I thought I'd share with you. Above is the author, his daughter Barbara (said to be who Madeline is modeled after) and his wife Madeline or Mimi. Born in Austria in 1898, Ludwig (best name ever) Bemelmans spent the early years of his life in the hotel business. He became a US citizen sometime in his thirties. Ludwig always had a passion for art but not so much for writing. It was at the suggestion of a friend that he write a children's book. His first was written in 1934. Love this image of Notre Dame. Another one my practicum kids created a bulletin board featuring it and we used it today as well. Poor little Madeline's appendix burst! But she ends up with that super sweet scar to show for it. The author wrote seven Madeline books (the last one was not discovered until after his death) and other children and adult books. Although Ludwig became famous for his Madeline books, he always considered himself more an artist than a writer. In fact, he has works of art on display in the Metropolitan Museum in New York and the Museé National d'Art of Paris. I still love Madeline the best. Especially if it means a big read bow and a sweet sailor dress. Merci, Madeline! Au revoir and Happy Halloween!
Till We Have Faces a Myth Retold by C.S. Lewis Review and Summary
Books Worth Reading, Lewis Book, Beloved Book, Reading List, Favorite Book, Books To Read, Time Favorite, Books Reading
Till We Have Faces - by C. S. Lewis. A retelling of the Cupid & Psyche myth from the ugly sister's POV. (It spring-boarded me - at age 9 - into the life-long study of fairy tales.)
Til We Have Faces | C.S. Lewis...amazing book about the destructive nature of love. This is a most poignant and moving book. Read it twice.
One of CS Lewis's more obscure works and one of my favorite books. I've read it several times and want to read it again. Definitely a book worth reading.
"Till We Have Faces" by C.S. Lewis - haunting and gorgeous. Going on the To Be Read list now!
"Till We Have Faces" by C.S. Lewis - haunting and gorgeous. One of my favorite books.

Charlottes Web by E.B. White. Read to our 4th grade class by our teacher Mrs.Pugh, how fun it was visualizing what the characters looked like in our minds, using our imaginations. Years later when the movie came out, it was great seeing them brought to life. Still one of my favorite children's books to this day!

7 Children’s Books Worth Reading as an Adult | Opt for some bedtime literature that’s more soothing than the newspaper.
My experience - All throughout school, whenever we had to do a book project, all students were asked to complete the project over the same book. I remember doing something on Charlotte's Web in elementary. As a teacher, I want my students to have more of a choice when it comes to projects like these. I know it is not practical to have each student doing a project over a different book, however, I would at least like to provide a list of books that students can choose from to give them choice.

B. White tells the memorable story of Wilbur, a little pig who becomes famous with the help of his clever friend Charlotte and their chatty animal neighbors. As the runt of the litter, Wilbur struggles to survive from the very beginning. Fern begs her father, Mr. Arable, to raise Wilbur and nurse him to health. Fern succeeds and Wilbur moves to Zuckerman Farm, where he learns the true meaning of friendship from the wise gray spider Charlotte. When it becomes apparent that Wilbur is being well fed for a reason, Charlotte and Wilbur are determined to foil Mr. Zuckerman’s plans. With the help of Charlotte and her “terrific” webs, Templeton the rat, and other barnyard friends, Wilbur becomes the prize-winning pig of the County Fair and the most famous pig ever.

Title: "i heart books" This is a perfect gift for that bookworm you know. :) Edition: Open- I believe every one should have the opportunity to collect art. By not numbering my prints it ensures everyone will have the opportunity, and also allows me to sell each print cheaper then if it were numbered and in small quantity. Although you may find a small edition of a certain print in the future, most all of my work will not be numbered. Image Size: 8x10 , although also available in 11x14. Paper Size: 8.5x11. Each print will arrive signed, dated, in a clear plastic sleeve, and packaged with a thick piece of cardboard. Paper: Each print will be printed on archival natural white canvas. Here are a few of the reasons, as to why I am totally in love with this paper. 1.) It is bendable, so shipping safely is even easier! 2.) The canvas paper is stronger and more durable then other papers. 3.) The depth and color of the finished product is truly amazing, and very crisp.

The Children's Book by A.S. Byatt ~ Beautiful Cover
The Children's Book - A.S. Byatt
The Children's Book (Book) : Byatt, A. S. : Random House, Inc.From the renowned author of Possession, The Children’s Book is the absorbing story of the close of what has been called the Edwardian summer: the deceptively languid, blissful period that ended with the cataclysmic destruction of World War I. In this compelling novel, A.S. Byatt summons up a whole era, revealing that beneath its golden surface lay tensions that would explode into war, revolution and unbelievable change — for the generation that came of age before 1914 and, most of all, for their children.The novel centres around Olive Wellwood, a fairy tale writer, and her circle, which includes the brilliant, erratic craftsman Benedict Fludd and his apprentice Phillip Warren, a runaway from the poverty of the Potteries; Prosper Cain, the soldier who directs what will become the Victoria and Albert Museum; Olive’s brother-in-law Basil Wellwood, an officer of the Bank of England; and many others from every layer of society. A.S. Byatt traces their lives in intimate detail and moves between generations, following the children who must choose whether to follow the roles expected of them or stand up to their parents’ “porcelain socialism.” Olive’s daughter Dorothy wishes to become a doctor, while her other daughter, Hedda, wants to fight for votes for women. Her son Tom, sent to an upper-class school, wants nothing more than to spend time in the woods, tracking birds and foxes. Her nephew Charles becomes embroiled with German-influenced revolutionaries. Their portraits connect the political issues at the heart of nascent feminism and socialism with grave personal dilemmas, interlacing until The Children’s Book becomes a perfect depiction of an entire world.Olive is a fairy tale writer in the era of Peter Pan and Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind In the Willows, not long after Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. At a time when children in England suffered deprivation by the millions, the concept of childhood was being refined and elaborated in ways that still influence us today. For each of her children, Olive writes a special, private book, bound in a different colour and placed on a shelf; when these same children are ferried off into the unremitting destruction of the Great War, the reader is left to wonder who the real children in this novel are.The Children’s Book is an astonishing novel. It is an historical feat that brings to life an era that helped shape our own as well as a gripping, personal novel about parents and children, life’s most painful struggles and its richest pleasures. No other writer could have imagined it or created it.
