ML doesn’t know about the blog. She’s reaching the age if she finds out I consistently write about the funny things she does and says, she’s likely to be mad. Therefore, I’m changing the blog a bit for 2015.
Picture Books – They were my first love and still are. It makes me happy ML still enjoys them. In most of my posts, I’ve tried to tell a story about ML’s life which relates to the book. I’ll continue to do it from time to time. However, the format I’ve used this December will be used for a majority of the posts. I’ll quote a synopsis from the publishers page. Then, provide commentary on “Why Should You Read This Book?”
Chapter Books – My job responsibilities are changing January, 2016. My main focus will be elementary-aged children. In preparation, I need to read more chapter books. I hope to write about at least one chapter book a month.
Nonfiction Books – When one arrives which is excellent, I will write a post in similar structure to the picture books.
Young Adult Books – I plan to read two. The one which wins the 2015 Printz award and one that grabs my eye when it arrives.
Guest Posts – I am going to recruit my coworkers, their children and ML’s bookclub to write about their favorite books. I’ll provide a form similar to the book review ML’s teacher sends home. Then, I will type the featured reader’s response. Grammar and spelling will not be changed.
Happy New Year!
