Kid Lit

Here’s an alphabetized list of all the books I’ve reviewed. If the title starts with the word “A” or “The” then I used the next word for the alphabet placement.

Would you like to follow up a book reading with a GRAND CONVERSATION? I have detailed instructions on how I facilitate this elevated book talk 🙂
