Sunday Reads: Learning Basics of Our Busy World

“Are you more like Pig Will or Pig Won’t?” I asked Nora today, after we read the first half of Richard Scarry’s Please and Thank You Book She looked at me, knowing that lately she’s been testing the waters of helpfulness – one minute begging to set the table, the next minute too wrapped up [...]

Sunday Reads – Books For Tiny Dancers

It’s no secret around here that Nora loves to dance. Give the girl a leotard and some music and she’s ready to go, designing her own routines, naming her own moves, and insisting that we watch her over and over again. Weekend dance shows are my favorite – they are long and involved and there [...]

Sunday Reads – Back To School

Over the next few days I’ll be leading meetings where we discuss the shift in the philosophy of English instruction that is going on in high schools across the country. When I was in school, I read voraciously, soaking up the words that my English teachers assigned me. I know I am an exception, that [...]

Sunday Reads – Favorite Characters

When Nora was a year old, her Nana gave us a book for her to “grow into” when she was no longer ripping paper and wanting to put everything in her mouth. The book sat, pretty much unlooked at, for at least six months, waiting for the toddler to be ready to move beyond board [...]

Sunday Reads #14 – ABCs Edition

Miles has begun the amazing thing I remember Nora doing, the mimicking of language and songs and tunes. Lately he loves to listen to the ABCs and then he sings back the first three or so notes and promptly claps for himself. Of course I have jumped all over that and have been showing him [...]

Sunday Reads #13 – Potty Training Edition

This week, for your Sunday reading pleasure – a roundup of the best potty training books to read to toddlers (again at a friend’s request). I am in no way going to pretend that I am a potty training expert. Nora pretty much potty trained herself, with the help of her teachers at school, after [...]

Sunday Reads #12

I traveled with the kids this week and for three days we had fun with friends who had moved away from Austin last year. There were four kids four and under in the house, causing chaos and noise and fun, so needless to say I didn’t really read much this week. I didn’t even read [...]

Sunday Reads: Week 11

This week was rich with reading that led to rich thinking. This week demonstrated best why I love reading on the Internet – one voice starts the conversation and then so many more join in – so many that you can’t possibly read/hear them all. And the best part is that there are always new [...]

Sunday Reads: Week 10

So this week’s title is a lie. After a week at a conference – a conference that lasted long into the day and then was followed by needed and enjoyable unwinding time with colleagues in the evenings, it’s needless to say I didn’t read much.Which is a lie too, because I read a ton in [...]
