Hi everyone! It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? I am entering both reading hops today, the regular one and the one for kiddy lit. For Teacher Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers Hop we have a book we won from Three Chatty Cats. Love Me Gently by Lisa Wienebrink and Illustrated by Eleanor Harbinson is an adorable book that teaches kids to be gentle with pets. I am giving it to “The Great One” because she has a dog and 2 cats. One page explains how the puppy could get sick if he eats people food, the funny part is she has already discovered her dog will eat anything she pushes off from the high chair.
I can’t even put into words how amazing Please Enjoy Your Happiness by Paul Brinkley- Rogers was. In his memoir, he tells of a friendship he had with an older ( he was 19, she was 31) Japanese woman . He was a U.S. sailor serving in Japan in 1959 when this happened. Through their mutual interests of reading and music they became friends and were in love, but never consummated their relationship. The memoir included letters she had written to him as well as poetry. After all this time, he still remembers their time together vividly and even attempts to find her.
And today’s word for the #JHC is treats:
