Are you ready?
What is one of the best books in the world? What is a book that will surprise you with each reread? What book will nurture your soul? What book will allow you to write beside the poems and unwrap your own stories . . . your own life?
I believe the answer is found in this book that is the initial book for elementary teachers participating in the Summer Book Love Book Club!
Franki Sibberson wrote about this book by Irene Latham and illustrated by Charles Waters in her blog post here. As I read Franki’s post, I was nodding my head to every statement. And like Franki said, this week’s discussion in Book Love Foundation’s Summer Book Club is already underway. (Seriously, go read what Franki said!)
You could still see these amazing speakers.
And interact with the almost 1,000 folks in the Book Club.
You might write or see examples . . .
Like my first draft poem for the beginning of #BookLove.
Week 1 has begun.
We wrote poetry Monday.
#BookLove learning has begun.
What is on your learning agenda?
What is your favorite poetry book?
Is there a book club in your summer plans?
