#blogbookaday: Hug This Book!

9 Apr

Hug This Book.jpgSummary:  “An energetic, heartfelt, and humorous ode to book love

You can spin and twirl and dance with this book.
You can listen while someone else reads it.
You can take your book to lunch.
Just do not try to feed it.” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: A book filled with all the great things you can do with books! It’s the perfect story for a family or class that loves books. With limited text and five colors in the bright swatches of colors across the page – this is a fun and visually appealing book to read. I really enjoy illustrators who are playing with a way to mix traditional and digital design together to create amazing art.

Personal Reaction: I wanted to hug this book when I was done with it! It’s an adorable story about loving books so much and sharing them with the people (and animals) around you! If you were doing a storytime or read aloud about books or the library, I would definitely include this title.

Title: Hug This Book!

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!

Blogging From A to Z Challenge

30 Mar


This is my third year participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge and I’m so happy I am finally writing this post – just under the wire as the AtoZ Challenge begins April 1st. Take a look at my first year’s theme – Storytime Plans from A to Z with books, rhymes and songs for a theme for each letter of the alphabet and last year’s theme – Leadership Traits.

My theme this year will be Library Program Planning from A to Z, so for each letter, I’ll describe a program that will hopefully inspire you to try at your own library, classroom or at home!

I’m excited to share more about the programming we do at our library and hopefully will be able to get a chance to connect with a lot of other bloggers working on the challenge as well. Every blogger can choose their own theme (or no theme at all) so it’s always interesting to see what others post! If you’re interested in more about the A to Z Challenge, I challenge you to check out their website!
