What a thrill to meet author-illustrator Laurie Keller at ALA #alaac18 (American Library Association) convention in #NewOrleans at her super tuber-tastic booksigning!
Nothing inspires a happy heartfelt “Awww” moment in me more than seeing a dad out and about, enjoying and guiding his child – that was the inspiration for MIGHTY DADS.
At the construction site, Dad forklifts, Dad dump trucks, etc guide their beloved little Daughter and Son construction vehicles in work, play, and simple life lessons. Along with some crash, bang, boom!

ZERO THE HERO performed in American Sign Language
Publisher link with mask printables, buy links, and teaching guide
Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. That's what all the other numbers think of Zero. He doesn't add anything in addition. He's of no use in division. And don't even ask what he does in multiplication. (Hint: Poof!) But Zero knows he's worth a lot, and when the other numbers are suddenly kidnapped by the Roman numerals, he swoops down to prove that his talents are innumerable.
I love how this mom and her 'growing up amazing' daughter used SEED SCHOOL as a springboard for so many bonding and learning activities. Nothing like some great outdoors family time spent hunting acorns and growing carrots!
Seed School Growing Up Amazing book trailer on youtube. A picture book. Little seeds doing push-ups out of the soil, learning through the seasons, being tossed by the wind, and growing up amazing with the help of a good teacher. Inspired by the garden I dug and planted in the backyard when I was eleven.

From the folks at Scripps National Spelling Bee today:
I am pleased to inform you that What is the Statue of Liberty? has been chosen as a 2018 Great Words, Great Works title by the Scripps National Spelling Bee. The purpose of this list is to highlight books that introduce students to rich and varied spelling and vocabulary words in context.
This brought back memories of my spelling bee loss in 6th grade. Who knew "necessary" did not include a double cc (not me)! :o)
