Happy 2nd Birthday to My Blog!

Happy 2nd birthday to my blog!  I’ve been officially blogging for two years now, and I’ve loved every minute of being apart of the blogging community. 

Looking back, I’ve done a lot of entries about my work as a teacher librarian.  I’ve blogged about little free libraries, books, makerspaces activities, and school library programs.  Some of my most popular blogs are:

2 - 10 Steps to Make a Doodlebot (from 1/16/17)
3 - The Little Free Library (this was my blog’s 1st post on 4/11/15)

In the future, I’d like to continue discussing my work as a teacher librarian with entries about books, makerspaces, and school library programs.  I’d also love to invite some guest bloggers to write on my blog as well - anyone interested?

Many thanks to those who have read my blog and other bloggers who inspire me with ideas and challenges.  I’m grateful to my readers and honored to blog among such talented educators.

Yay - the first #mustreadin2017 update is here and I have so much to share!  Thank you Carrie Gelson of There’s a Book for That for hosting this reading event.  In January I did a blog post motivating myself to read a variety of books (see picture below), and I'm proud to say that I read all of them.  The title that surprised me the most was Bob, Not Bob! by Audrey Vernick and Liz Garton Scanlon.  It's about a boy with a cold asking for his "mom," but his stuffy nose makes it sound like he's asking for "Bob" his dog.  It is hilarious and had my five year old daughter laughing out loud.  

Besides reading the titles above, I was distracted by new books.  Below are the additional books I've also read in the past few months:

Below are some upcoming titles that I’m looking forward to reading in the near future.  I'll be back in September with an update on my reading progress for #mustreadin2017.
