Friday List Mania 6 – The My Brain Is Fried Edition
I had two full day workshops this week. Two full day workshops, an entire chapter of my dissertation to write, a ba-zillion pages of website content to generate (Mrs. Mimi website coming soon to an internet near you!), a nursery rug to purchase and a book proposal to polish up. All while being 32 weeks pregnant and so exhausted that I could fall asleep on the floor with the vacuum running and the TV on.
Long story short, my brain… she is fried.
But you know I can always find the energy for list making.
A while ago, a few readers asked me to post the titles of some of my most favoritest read alouds. Request From You + Very Tired Brain = List Post About Books. It’s like a match made in heaven…like peanut butter and chocolate. Which reminds me, I must find some ice cream after posting and pre napping.
So here are a few (Because, really? We ALL know I have a Children’s Book Shopping Problem) of my faves, in no particular order. I hope this is what you were looking for!! (Click the images for links.)
(Keep in mind I taught the small fries in first and second grades.)
I am also a closeted Junie B. Jones lover. Talk about hilarious…my kids almost wet themselves laughing at these perfect End Of The Day bite sized chapters. And talk about a great illustration of the use of voice in a written text!
As a lover of teaching the arts and farts in class, this book is fan-tabulous. So many of my friends would be consumed with a fear of “messing up” their artwork, but this book usually seemed to do the trick.
I think that’s enough for now. If you’re still with me and reading, you deserve a virtual high five…or at least a cocktail. Have one for me too.
