Today’s selection is a book I’m looking forward to reading. I ordered it from my friendly book-lady at Osborne Books for my LFL.

the Little Free Library in my side yard, a gift that keeps on giving…
I intend to read this soon and place it in my LFL.

The back cover says, “Aurora Beam has just had some BIG NEWS. Her mum is a secret superhero and now Aurora’s own powers are starting to show–sparks of lightning are shooting out of her fingertips!” Wow! who wouldn’t want to read this book? It continues, ” Then an evil supervillain pops up with a plot to steal a very precious stone. Can Aurora save the day, helped (or more likely hindered ) by her fierce friends and a very snooty ostrich?” I mean, wow, even an ostrich thrown in for humor, what’s not to like?

Evin, Addie, Megan, and all my teen blogging friends, heads up; this one’s for you guys!

Thanks, Even for the cool sign-off!

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."
