Another Rock Award and Book Fair Fun

Laurie, you and Chickadee Jubilee rock!

Coming soon to a mailbox near you!!
I have to give a hoot about my "kindred blogging spirit" Laurie at Chickadee Jubilee.  She wrote a kind post about me and all that we have in common, while I was planning and "head-writing" a post about her!!  Of all the things I've gotten from blogging,  new friendships has to be at the top of my list.  To quote Anne Shirley, “I’m so thankful for friendship.  It beautifies life so much.”   Something else we seem to have in common, Laurie, is a love for Anne of Green Gables. Thank you for being my bosom blogging buddy.  Rereading all the Anne books this summer is on my summer bucket list!  EVERY one of your posts gives me inspiration and joy.  I wish my children could have had you as their teacher.  That is why I am presenting you with my 2nd YOU Rock Award!  Enjoy your last weeks with your sweet chickadees before they fledge to 3rd!  If you haven't checked out this chick(adee's) blog you must!!  You can follow my link or look for her button over there...

Lovable, laughable Clifford
I am the Book Fair Chairperson!  That means twice a year I get to push books on children who actually know my motive.  With each book fair over the past five years, it has gotten easier.  I've learned how to twist arms,beg  ask for help and have enjoyed being the first to see the wonderful books Scholastic sends.  The fair that is going on right now is my favorite.  It is not a fund raiser, but a fun raiser!  We don't actually make a profit on this fair. We do get a free book with each book we buy.  BOGO book fairs are great ways to build classroom and home libraries.  I buy a box of books and keep them in my basement to give as gifts all year long. Just so you know Scholastic Books did not pay me to say any of this, but they can if they'd like to!  With scenes like this during the week who wouldn't want to be the book fair queen chair!?

forget playing ....I'll read!

Look how excited this kid is!!

Nine days, but I'm not counting!!


  1. I love it! What a wonderful way to share your love of reading with all! Thank you for all your work and effort that you put into this book fair for your school and community! Your hard work really paid off!

    ~Your Wonderful Book Fair Consultant, Jen

  2. Book fairs were my favorite "activity" in school, and I love ANY excuse to buy a book . . . I think that's one good thing to be addicted to. Keep up the good work of getting the kids excited about reading.

  3. I love are too sweet. I am a huge fan of Anne...although I like the movies better than the books and have to watch all 8 hours consecutively. Listening to the audio books is one of my favorite road trip activities.

    The boy in bottom picture so reminds me of Dick Van Dyke, in Chitty Chitty Bang fantastic!

    Have a wonderful wonderful weekend!
