Happy spring break (in DC)! My ECE team started a book club a few months ago, and this month’s read is It’s OK Not to Share by Heather Shumaker. I’m only five chapters in, but so far in love. If I’m not enough to convince you, read the book report the Ooey Gooey Lady posted on Facebook.
Another one of my favorite early childhood resources is The Impact of Early Art Experiences on Literacy Development (buy it used, if you can — especially if you have to save your money for liquid watercolors like me). I found this book at the Eric Carle Museum (their Studio Blog is fabulous), and I love to flip through and be inspired. The authors do a great job of connecting excellent experiences with high-quality literature and standards, so it’s a great book to keep in your classroom when the wolves come knocking.
Do you have any book club recommendations for us? What is your favorite ECE book?
