This is an excellent book to be reading the week before Halloween. I was inspired to pick it up by this sweet, young thing...
She was reading The Graveyard Book and learned of the song Danse Macabre which I happened to find in a classical book, level 4, challenging, yet accessible to her. We looked it up on Wikipedia and heard a chilling recording. Click here for the link. I get excited about connections between the arts and our lives and when it brings out creativity in my students, and myself.
Besides reading a spooky Halloween book, I have taken a bit of a blog break to spend some school-free days with my boys. It was teacher convention time, so we visited a corn maze...
Off they run!
And, now for the Literary Bloggers that I follow:
Roxane, at Peace Garden Mama for building up readers and writers.
Shannon, at Book Dreaming because she believes that picture books have something for kids of all ages.
And, Kittie, at The Block, for her post on passing books along to people in other countries and cultures in a mission to bring hope and education.
Thanks for reading about all my recent adventures!
Go. Create. Inspire!
