  1. Technically read in 2011 ... but, um ... oh well. ;]

  2. Hi! Here's our contribution for Nonfiction Monday over at GatheringBooks:
    "The Tree that Time Built" Selections by Mary Ann Hoberman and Linda Winston -

    Happy New Year and best of luck with the Challenge!

  3. The subject is bees and honey over at Ms. Yingling Reads today.

    Happy New Year! I'm going to suggest to my students that they make goals, not resolutions!

  4. My fist Nonfiction Monday! It's a gorgeous biography by Allen Say. Something for everyone, part graphic novel, narrative, and collage...

  5. I have (belatedly) added two titles from OwlKids Press, On an American Day and Learn to Speak Dance. Thanks!

  6. I reviewed a book about time for kids, A Second is a Hiccup.
