Books bring so much happiness, excitement, and anticipation to all of us as we take them in and become part of the story that is happening inside of the pages.
One publishing company who does an wonderful job at putting beautiful books into the hands of our children is Simon & Schuster.
On Monday, I opened a package from Simon & Schuster with the books above tucked inside. They are celebrating these new books for the Summer of 2014. I was so excited to look through the books and read the first few pages of each.
Tonight I started Doreen Cronin's new book, The Chicken Squad. What a fun book! My students will just love this one.
Simon & Schuster has tons of amazing resources online for all of us.
I just love their website, TEACH.simonandschuster.net! It is such a great site dedicated to teachers, education, librarians, and especially.....kids. It includes curriculum guides, common core state standards information, text exemplars, nonfiction books, recommended fiction, and so much more.
You can also connect with Simon & Schuster Education & Library on their Facebook page.
Also, find them on Twitter at S & S Education Library @SSEdLib .
You can become Simon & Schuster's friend on Goodreads too.
Thank you for being such a terrific publisher and resource for all of us Simon & Schuster.....You are making a difference in the lives of our young people and families, and within our communities.
Thank you for making a difference in Van Meter.
