What "literature-based" means to me

What happens when a book-lovin' literature-rich curriculum junkie goes to the library with her book-lovin' boy to get school books?

Well.... here's two weeks' worth:
That doesn't include our read-aloud and the books I'm reading for myself.

Some of those pictured are ours, most are from the library. While I think everyone (especially kids!) should own books, I can never understand why anyone would buy all their books when they have unlimited FREE access at the library!

Anyway.... I loved seeing our basket full of books and wanted to share with you. Have you read anything good lately?

That looks like what we bring home from the library! I agree that free is better, some people don't have access to a good library though.

That basket looks like the one we have--full to overflowing! Currently checked out at our house:
1. "Skippyjon Jones"
2. "Click, Clack, Moo, Cows that Type" (by Doreen Cronin)
3. "Junie B Jones" by Barbara Park for my new big girl chapter book reader Lauren!
4. originial "Mary Poppins" my Mary Travers for Rachel
5. several bug books for Emilee

We looooove the library!
