💝 💘”Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink” by Diane de Groat was the Valentine’s Day favorite book for my kindergarteners and my daughters!💌It’s a clever story of a Valentine’s mix-up, a bit of hurt feelings and revenge and, finally, a compassionate solution!💗 The children love slowly figuring out the Valentines mystery and any book that encourages more critical thinking is a winner for me!🤔💪🏻The characters are darling and my favorite is the teacher, Mrs. Byrd! 🐧(When the class was fighting “she made the class do workbooks for the rest of the morning.”😂😉!) It includes some great extensions for crafts, writing Valentines and rhyming words!🖍️ Also, one of the ideas I taught the children was that the more “dog-eared” the book, the more loved was the story! 🐶(Kind of like choosing a restaurant by the number of cars in their parking lot!😉😂!) My copy proves that point well and I used to tell the children, “Be so gentle with this treasure of a book!”😍💖 This delightful story is perfect for 5, 6, and 7 year olds and will be on repeat “read it again!” status for days!💘💌💝

Funny title, yet this book sends a good reminder and message to kids that it is never okay to be mean or cruel to others! Sure there will always be some people you like more than others but kindness always wins in the end! This is a great book to read as children prepare their Valentines for classmates this coming week!

💗❤️ “Reading Fatigue”💙 Say what?🤔😣 I wanted to do a post on my favorite books for Valentine’s Day, but I had the wonderful opportunity of speaking to a group of amazing mothers yesterday and that phrase popped up!💗 I was speaking about the first step in reading readiness for our preschool children and how a language rich environment is crucial.☺️ Reading books out loud to them, talking with them All. Day. Long.😉 and involving our littles in cooking, cleaning and nature all contribute to strong language development.🙌🏻 But when this trusting mama stated, “I love reading to them each day, but I’m starting to get ‘reading fatigue’ and I feel guilty if I put them on a device that reads to them!” I literally stopped in my tracks!🤔 I’m a teacher and so my (false) assumption has always been that everyone loves to read to children like I do!🤷‍♀️ But in answering her I realized how exhausting it is sometimes and so “not fun!”😑 I thanked her for being able to express out loud what so many parents might feel...that nightly read-alouds can often feel grinding.😭 I assured her that her child was not missing out by sometimes listening to a story on a device. 💪🏻We also suggested having that child read the nightly story to us, to herself, to her younger siblings or even to a family pet or stuffed animal! ✨ Or even taking a night off!💪🏻Giving ourselves grace around our daily parenting routines needs to be just that...grace that we’re doing the very best we can! 🙏🏻 And our children will benefit, always, because we will be giving them the very best of ourselves!💗💙🙏🏻

This is an oldie, but I still love it! I am a fan of this series by Diane Degroat- mostly because it relates pretty accurately to a school setting. Gilbert and his friends are off on a field trip learning about the first thanksgiving and someone gets lost! Fun and entertaining with a feel good ending! #thanksgivingbooks #dianedegroat #gilbert #booklover #bookworm #bookalicious #thanksgivingfun #goodreads #readmeastory #childrensbooks #childrensliterature

Love a good story - and this is one of those good stories. A family of hedgehogs that reminds me of life with our six children. The illustrations are FAB. A read-aloud book for ages 4 and up. #DianedeGroat #trickortreat #TrickorTreatSmellMyFeet #holloweencostume #childrensbooks #firstedition http://etsy.me/2xc4g5L

Sorry, I don't mean anything weird by including #goodwives in this photo. 😂
It's just that I wanted to use my copy of Little Women to go with The Little Women Book activity book, but some "friend" of mine borrowed it and never bothered to return it to me. 😣
