Did a little #drawthisinyourstyle of @ruthhammondillustration’s drawing. I love her use of colors and her storytelling in her drawings. ☺️swipe to see her original! Also these draw ___ in your style prompts are really interesting because I don’t think I have a particular style. Maybe through these I’ll discover my style. 🤔#ruthhammondillo25k
Even after all these years, I still cannot read this book without bursting into laughter. In this 2001 Caldecott Honor Book, author Doreen Cronin brings us a witty tale about a herd of unhappy typing cows. The cows find their barn chilly, using their typewriter they write letters about this problem to their owner, Farmer Brown. This book has often been used to introduce students to persuasive letter writing. However, I also think it could be used to introduce students to the democratic rights of free speech and rights to assemble. The book introduces terms such as strike and ultimatum, which could add to further conversations about the civil powers of democracy. #socialstudies#elementaryteacher#elemschool#childrensbooks#kidslit#caldecotthonor#reading#bookstagram#clickclackmoo

We as educators must educate our students on multiple historical perspectives. “When We Were Alone” tells the story of one Cree woman’s experience in a residential school. She reflects on her experiences as she relays the story of her past to her granddaughter. Author David A. Robertson provides a gentle introduction to a serious topic.This book won the Canadian Governor General's Literary Award in 2017 for Illustrated books. Use this book as a resource with students just gaining an understanding of the complexities of Canadian history, and Indigenous communities. #socialstudies#canadianhistory#childrensliterature#kidslit#highwaterpress
I have always loved collecting Christmas picture books. The passion began when I was an elementary school teacher. There were several years that my sister-in-law -another elementary teacher-gave me Christmas picture books for Christmas. And my collecting was begun. ⠀ ⠀ I continued to collect as we started to have children. Every year I would try to add one or two. Each year the books were packed up with our Christmas decorations because much of the fun was in getting them down and remembering them all over again. ⠀ ⠀ And then-after a move-there came a year when we got down the Christmas decorations but couldn't find the books! We looked and looked but no books. The kids weren't really old enough to notice, but I was heartbroken. ⠀ ⠀ Slowly I began collecting again, but I missed those first books. ⠀ ⠀ And then, once upon an attic cleaning, my books resurfaced! I added the new ones to the mix and found a permanent place on our bookshelves for them so I wouldn't risk losing them again. ⠀ ⠀ When the kids were young, I would get them down and put them under the tree during the Christmas season. Now they seem a little lonely up on the shelf. I still have kids that will take them down every now and then to read them. 🙂🎄⠀ ⠀ The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree at the bottom of this pile was the book from my sister-in-law that started it all. Olivia-in the front-has been a long time family favorite. ⠀ ⠀ Does your family correct Christmas books? What's your favorite?⠀ ⠀ #kidsbooks#kidslit#kidsread#kidsreading#readaloud#bookshelf#booksforkids#childrensliterature#literaturelovers#literaturebasedhomeschooling#aswewalk#christmas#christmasbooks
Sensory Bin: It’s Christmas, David. 🎄 I love creating a sensory bin where items have been strategically placed to invite the children to play. It’s open ended and there is no right or wrong way to play! They get to create their own experience and usually come up with far better games that I could have thought of! Play doesn’t have to elaborate or even expensive either! A lot of these items came from @dollartree last year! The little spatulas are from @hobbylobby , the gator tweezers are from @learningresources , the felt Santa letter was from @targetsdollarspot from last year. 🎄 What kind of sensory bins do you like creating or which ones would you like to see me create❓❓
The process of making a picture book happens in stages. It happens in pieces. An early draft of the manuscript that became Tomorrow is Waiting is dated December 2, 2014. (For reference, I wrote it on a computer that could burn CDs). It takes a long time to make a picture book! Having worked as a children’s book editor for six years prior to becoming a writer, I am familiar with this timeline. A project inches along from draft to final, sketches to full color, printouts to bound book and the whole time, the world inches along with it. We’ve changed the waistlines of our jeans and our opinions about wallpaper. We’ve update our phones. The world has changed in other ways, too, and right now it has never felt more important to teach our children to search with purpose, laugh with kindness, and act with friendship. As parents, we are not just raising children. We are raising the future. #tomorrowiswaiting#raiseareader#childrensbooks#bookstagram#kidslit#penguinkids#booksofinstagram#picturebook

Little Walrus was excited tonight on the way home from nursery because the moon ‘has his light on’ 💙😭💙🌙💙 WAAH SO CUTE. So we came home and read Moon by @britta_teckentrup twice because it’s gorgeous and she illustrates the moon with his light on rather beautifully. Get your hands on this book if you can, the die cuts showing the waxing and waning of the moon are so clever, and the moon is foily and shiny and sumptuous.

Slovensko-Teherán obyčajnou poštou v decembri za 8 pracovných dní. Neverím! Všetky podľa aktuálnych záujmov nášho 3 ročného krpca a Worm a Slug na výslovne prianie. Pop-upka o jedle je úžasná. Nejaké nepresnosti som si všimla, čo sa faktov týka (vyd.z r.2007), ale to jej odpustím. Nafotím čoskoro. #kidslit
