I love reading now! I didn’t always love reading. I struggled learning to read as a kid. However, I’ve been fortunate to have some inspiring educators and mentors who taught me how to enjoy books and learn about the pleasure and usefulness of books.
As an educator, I’m always trying to find inspirational and fun books to hook students into the love of reading. As a parent, I’ve enjoyed sharing books with my children and grandchildren. There is so much research that shows the benefits of parents reading to their children! Not only does reading inspire the love of reading but it’s also such a wonderful way to bond with your child!
This week I saw an article about the 4 new children’s books by author, Jamie Lee Curtis. I am thrilled to share them with you here:
1. I’m Gonna Like Me: Letting off a Little Self-Esteem
2. It’s Hard to be Five – Learning How to Control my Control Panel
3. Today I Feel Silly & Other MoodsThat Make My Day
4. Is There Really a Human Race?
I have not read these but hope to do so ASAP!
