Frog and Toad 
The many stories of Frog and Toad are fun and so enjoyable and each story has a memorable
message for the reader,
Reading is magic! How else can you go so many places without leaving your classroom or home?  Teach the magic and wonder of reading.   Children love real books by real authors....take an adventure with your young readers into the pages of one of your favorite books.  Here are two of mine!  Follow my blog and find some innovative and creative ways to teach reading and writing which involves thinking.  It's the best way to hook kids into reading.  I will post genuine reading experiences for children which will create a love of books and reading.  Frank Smith wrote "children who are engaged in the activity of reading will improve their reading abilities and gain knowledge."    Allow children to make their own book choices guided by your teaching expertise.
