I had so much fun putting together this padlet of my #oldiesbutgoodies picture books. These are some that I read to my own children when they were young & now read to my grands. I realize that a few titles were actually on Captain Kangaroo... now that was a long time ago...

I'm late but I could not miss this annual gathering of goodness for readers everywhere. This year I focus on bees and beekeeping. I am worried for bees and the results for all of us due to their diminishing numbers. Let's keep awareness of and for them growing.

10 books to celebrate togetherness and kindness.

This isn't beautiful because I ran out of time, and it isn't 10 because I couldn't omit one of these favorites, so without further ado, here are 11 books that I realized I couldn't live without this year.

Drawn Together by Minh Le has sparse text, rich images, and a tender, moving, joyful story.

Little Worlds by Géraldine Collet is a perfect book to share during the first week of school as we get to know each other and bring our little worlds into new community.

Alfie:(The Turtle That Disappeared) by Thyra Heder is great for perspective, predictions, and inferencing. Fantastic illustrations and a wonderful story.

The Word Collector by Peter Reynolds will be a delight to anyone who loves words.

Love by Matt de la Pena is just . . . so . . . beautiful.

A Leaf Can Be . . . by Laura Purdie Salas is beautiful, poetic, and thought-provoking.

The Quiet Place by Sarah Stewart is truly wonderful and makes me want everyone to send me their favorite word for my birthday.

After the Fall: How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again by Dan Santat seems more brilliant every time I read it.

Now by Antoinette Portis is a lovely example of being present, enjoying each moment, and being content.

A Bike Like Sergio’s by Maribeth Boeits is such a well told story. Captures the emotions of longing, of being conflicted, of doing what is right though there may not be a reward. Loved that we didn't get a predictable ending (boy returns money, lady gives enough of a reward to buy the bike). Really well done.

More-Igami by Dori Kleber celebrates persistence, patience, diversity.

Well, I'm a little late the party today, but here is my collection of ten books because we're BETTER TOGETHER.

I can't wait to check out all of the posts. Off to grab my library card and start reserving titles. It looks like some of my other central Ohio friends may be a bit ahead of me in line. ;o)

My #pb10for10! My first ten read alouds for the new school year. I am headed back to the classroom after some time away.
