Happy Tuesday! I'm linking up with Deanna Jump again for my second BOOK TALK TUESDAY! I love reading everyone's posts about their favorites. I'm currently reading The Courage to Teach and I am beyond obsessed with it, BUT I can't talk about that until I finish it.. So far it is incredible. If you're looking for a motivational book to read this summer, start The Courage to Teach now! :)
Today, I'm going to talk about one of my favorite books that is very special to me, Louisiana- What's So Special About You? written by Linda Sale and illustrated by Craig Routh. If there are any teachers out there from Louisiana OR if you are teaching your students about different states, this is the perfect book (about one of the most amazing states--OK maybe I'm a little biased.. ).
This colorful and informational book can be read by children of all ages. The pages are so interactive, which is why I was so drawn towards it. The author and illustrator created this wonderful book to tell the world how special Louisiana is and let me tell you.. They accomplished that goal! They are both natives to Louisiana, like myself, and you can learn about the author/illustrator here!
Now, I'm off to read more book requests from bloggers!
