Happy Thanksgiving from Mary Ann, Erika, and Grace at The Classroom Bookshelf. We will be back next week, squeezing in our final favorites from 2012 before the year ends. We are grateful for the work we do, and the opportunity to share it with you and your students.
If you are looking for a read aloud in the last couple of days before the holiday, you might find our entry on last year’s Balloons Over Broadway by Melissa Sweet of interest.
