We had so much fun last year with our authors of the month, I decided to do it again with 9 new authors. I am looking forward to expanding our authors this year, and hopefully learning about some new titles.
The intended audience of the
books is PK-3rd, but my older kids love to revisit their favorites. I am
going to gather the books from my personal collection and ask my local
librarian to help me gather more by that author. I am going to put them
in a special tub/bin and keep them available for the month. My hope is
that by having them all gathered, I will be able to grab and read
them. I feel like personally I need to be more intentional about
reading good literature to my kids. When I ask them to grab a book we
tend to read some less quality titles. I am also hoping the older kids
will read these to the younger ones as well.
I will try to post these at the
end of the previous month. Hopefully you can join me on my journey.
These are the authors I am planning on for this school year. But, they
are subject to change. I am choosing easy to find authors who have
published many books.
So here is the new list of authors for 2014-2015
September-H. A. Rey
October- Pat Hutchins
November- Cynthia Rylant
December-Chris Van Allsburg
February- Kevin Henkes
March- Eve Bunting
