The Orange Moon book series is based upon a child’s wonder of the Natural World. A magical reminder of the power of love and innocence. Ellouise, known to her family and animal friends as Orange Moon, gifts her love everywhere she roams. From adventures in her backyard with her little brother, to visiting her gadget (tech)-obsessed cousin in New York City, Ellouise shares her love and finds beauty everywhere she goes, even in the unlikeliest places.
Neil Gaiman: Por que nosso futuro depende de bibliotecas, de leitura e de sonhar acordado
Excellent lecture! I highly recommend reading the written version of Neil's lecture on reading and imagination in the Century. 'We have an obligation to imagine' … Neil Gaiman gives The Reading Agency annual lecture on the future of reading and libraries.
Tell Me a Tattoo Story This cleverly has the tone of a bedtime story (as the title riffs on) and has moments sure to make you tear up as it reads the history of this little boy's family through his father's tattoos.
This is part of a series of books about Carl, the dog, by Alexandra Day. They have no/few words in them. They are perfect to allow a child to tell his own story. The benefits of this are many--forming complete thoughts and verbalizing them, sequencing, cause and effect, interpreting picture into useful information, context clues, etc. It would also be good for ELL/ESL students to practice oral English.
