Book Talk Tuesday!
I LOVE books. What teacher doesn't, right? As a child I read constantly. I even snuck books to school and read them during class by hiding them inside the textbook I was supposed to be looking at. My geometry teacher busted me a couple of times but he seemed to be the only one who caught on. Or maybe the only one who caught on and said something. :)
I had such a hard time deciding which book to choose. I ended up deciding on one of my favorite back to school books: The Brand New Kid by Katie Couric. Yes, the Katie Couric from NBC. It's a story about trying to fit in and I feel like it's something all our kiddos worry about whether they are new to their school or not. It's a brand new year in a brand new grade with a brand new teacher for every kid headed to school this year.
My daughter is heading back to school on September 1 and she will be in second grade. I can't wait to read this one to her and see what kind of discussions we have about it. Now if I could only find it...the joys of moving internationally!
