Those last days of summer, when you've overdosed on corn on the cob and ice cream cones and endless games of tag and the air lies hot and heavy. Suddenly, crisp air and the thought of school doesn't seem as awful as it did back in June. Maybe a tiny bit of you actually looks forward to cracking open a book or two. At least that's how it was for me, back in the day.
I'm starting to get that same feeling of anticipation, and so I'm looking ahead to some of the new books for beginning readers due out this fall. I can't wait!
Next week I'll post some chapter books that are making me drool. What fall books are you looking forward to?
