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.

Making HOOT Come Alive!

Yesterday, Thunder Eagle Wildlife Organization in Dinwiddie County paid us a visit.  Hurricane Team member, Zachary Lockhart shared, “Thunder Eagle’s visit was informative and interesting.  I was really surprised when the first owl came out.”  Yes, real live owls were inside the J.E.J. Moore lecture room.  This group provides care and treatment of injured, orphaned or displaced birds and small mammals.  Their primary goal is to support nature’s balance by compassionate care of wildlife, which is a BIG message or theme that is shared throughout our novel, Hoot.  Please take a moment to ask your child what they learned from these fabulous speakers!  AND a BIG HURRICANCE THANK YOU to all the parents who joined us for this event!
