The Things You Can Read welcomes you and thanks you for your readership. We, here at The Things You Can Read, ask your help, if you visit our site regularly, please follow us either via email or Google Friend Connect.  Launched on June 7, 2012, our site has already attracted a great deal of attention.  One of the goals of the site is to feature reviews of Children's Picture Books, Young Adult novels and Adult Literary Fiction/Nonfiction.  A second goal for the blog is to be a resource for teachers of English and writing--with examples of student created writing, writing tips, resource links, and the opportunity to pick the brain of a seasoned English teacher.  To spice things up...every now and then, we'll also include random quotes and thoughts on education and life in general, but our ultimate goal is to reach out into the blogosphere and be a "Book Whisperer" and "Writing Whisperer" to children and adults of all ages.   Thank you for your readership.  Here is to a lifetime filled with reading and writing.

Arm Chair BEA: From Picture Books to Young Adult

Arm Chair BEA
I love children's picture books.  I actually spend more money buying physical picture books then I do adult fiction/non-fiction.  I am the mother of three children who are all under three and I love to share picture books with them.  I also use them to teach English to middle school aged children.  Picture books used in middle school, you say questioningly, yes I say!  Check out this great lesson using a wonderful picture book entitled The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, which was also turned into an Academy Award winning short film.  Check out our previous post about The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.  Click HERE to view the lesson, which I used with The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.
