Your Middle Schooler Will Love The Storm Runner! #TheStormRunner @ReadRiordan #Ad

*Disney Book Group is partnering with me for a giveaway!     As a Literacy Specialist who teaches adolescents, I am always on the lookout for new books that my students will love. Since I now have a son in high school and one in middle school, I also recommend these same books to my own boys. Recently, I introduced the book The Storm Runner to my classroom library and my 12 year-old has also gotten his hands on a copy and he can't seem to put it down!     I asked him what he loved so much about The Storm Runner and he shared with me that the book is full of adventure. He said that, as he was reading it, he was able to visualize exactly what was going on in the story and he felt like he was right there as the action was taking place. As an educator I know that books that inspire this type of love of reading are the ones that kids and teens really love.About the BookHow can one boy with a limp stop the Maya god of death, disaster, and darkness from destroying the world?Zane … [Read more...]

Celebrate Life’s Special Precious Moments #PreciousMoments @PreciousMoment #Ad

    Growing up in a Hispanic household, I vividly recall seeing the curio cabinets that were prominently displayed in the homes of my grandmother and godmother. They were full of sentimental items that us kids were not allowed to touch as we were too clumsy and might drop one of them. The only time I can recall seeing these items up close was when the cabinets would be opened for dusting and, even then, we were not allowed to touch anything unsupervised.     My godmother, Millie, had an extensive Precious Moments figurine collection which she prized and loved receiving new additions as gifts during special occasions from my godfather. I remember thinking how much I would love to have my own Precious Moments collection one day when I was a young girl. This year, Precious Moments, one of the world’s most recognized and inspirational brands known for their adorable figurines, is celebrating its big 40th Anniversary. I couldn't think of a better time to start my own collection in order to … [Read more...]
