Week of Giving Thanks - A is for A Good Book or Few

Are you ready for Day 3? It's Elizabeth from Kickin' it in Kindergarten. I'm here to host the "A" for our week of thanks. 

My A is for what I love to do the I'm sort of sticking to the plan because reading is on the top of the list for me. 
Yes, I love to work-out, teach, bake, etc etc. But, I really love curling up with a good book. 

I've got three categories for this one {grown-up, classroom, and teacher books} because reading really is something that I love and love to get my kids excited about. I made a big to-do about the library and the importance of loving to read. Other than kindness, manners, and treating others with respect...books are pretty high up on the list.
These are the books that I have been reading with my grown-up glasses on. I have been at the beach this week and I've finished Wild and I just started The Paris Wife. Last Spring Break, I finally read The Book Thief and really loved it.

Then of course, we all love our classroom books. My favorite children's author/illustrator is Oliver Jeffers. This is his newest book and it is ridiculously wonderful. All of his books make me so happy.

I'm the teacher that can't leave for Thanksgiving Break without my bookshelf matching the theme for the week we return. I also just love holiday books in general.

There are books out there that we need to read with out teacher glasses on. One of the best teacher books I've read was Crash Course. It's one that I think of often and it has inspired me to be a better teacher and to think outside of the box. It is one that I refer back to often and it continues to inspire me to this day.

Link up with either your favorite books or something else that starts with an "A"!
