I am sorry for the lengthy break between this post and my last one. I enjoyed my Christmas break a little too much and it has been hard to get back into the swing of things.
After a great time skiing and some much needed time off, I am back at it now and I am happy to make my comeback post with a book giveaway! I hope everyone knows Elizabeth Schoonmaker’s beloved book Square Cat and remembers the fun I had using it in my classroom. If you missed it, you can check out the post here.
Elizabeth brings Square Cat back again in her newest creation Square Cat ABC. I love the way Elizabeth has highlighted letters within everyday words young children may use and placed them within phrases rather than isolated them in single words. I think Square Cat’s dislike of spinach will be funny and relatable to little ones. The book is a great springboard for growing things, friendship, the ways we are alike or different from our friends, fruits, veggies, and nutrition. For more on Square Cat check out the New York Times Amazing review of Square Cat ABC here and the Square Cat website here.
Elizabeth has graciously offered to give away an autographed copy of her new book to two lucky bloggers. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below with your name, email address, and a fun suggestion for using the book in your classroom. The giveaway ends Tuesday night January 20th at midnight.
So… I have said it before, but I have to say it again… I am a CRAZY cat lady! So here are a few square cat funnies in honor of my two favorite cats- Sophie and Maggie!
