One of the most popular characters at my Little Free Library is caught reading, or rather being read to.Clifford-Wallpaper-sm.jpgMy cat, Freesia, loves to be read to.IMG_1061.jpeg

Who will you catch reading this month? Will someone catch you with a book in your hand? Get Caught Reading was a big deal in the primary school where I volunteered, and students were randomly photographed during candid moments when they were engrossed in reading. Their pictures were then posted.

Grab your camera and post in the comments a photo of someone you catch reading or someone reading to someone else. Most importantly, GET CAUGHT READING THIS MONTH!

This year (2019) finds me with 50 years of teaching "under my belt." I have taught all levels from pre-K "(library lady" or "book lady"--volunteer) to juniors, seniors, and graduate students enrolled in my Advanced Writing class at the university where I have just completed 30 years. My first paying teaching job was junior high, and I spent 13 years with ages 12-13, the "difficult years." I had some of the "funnest" experiences with this age group. When I was no longer the "young, fun teacher," I taught in an elementary school setting before sixth graders went on to junior high, teaching language arts blocs, an assignment that was a "dream-fit" for me. After completing graduate school in my 40s, I went on to community college, then university teaching. Just as teaching is "in my blood," so is a passion for reading, writing, libraries, and everything bookish. This blog will be open to anyone who loves books, promotes literacy and wants to "come out and play."
