Children's Book Week: November 12-18, 2007

Frindle by Andrew Clements (a smart story about a kid who makes up a word that ends up in the dictionary)

Can of Worms by Kathy Mackel (a funny story about a boy who's always believed he came from another planet--and finds out he DID)

Emily - Happy Children’s Book Week!

One option to celebrate this week is with a green children’s book.

Eco-Libris blog brings today a recommendation on The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle (written by Stefani Newman of teensygreen). It’s a great conversation starter about nature, the seasons, and helps kids open their eyes to the world outside.

You are welcome to read it at:

I can't tell you how many times I have suggested a book to a child (who elects not to take it) and have it really go home with someone else standing within earshot.
