|Breakfast boogie! In bed! |
And my sister/soon-to-be-roommate!
Anyway, the point is you will get ideas for good books to read to your students, to buy for your grandkids/nieces/nephews/kids/other friends' kids, etc. I love learning about children's literature and the work involved and the stories behind all the books. But mostly I know that many of you don't have the time or the energy to get into all of that. So, I guess my book recommendations are for folks out there who constantly ask, "What's a good book for kids?" If you are someone obsessed with kid lit like me, I hope you find a few things here as well. If you need to find an author reading to take your own child to, and you live in LA or Boston, you should find that here. If you are related to me or you have adopted me as part of your family in the many years I have been traveling to and fro, well, you are sure to get an update on my life every now and again.
Today's post will be for those of you who wait for Dance Friday and noticed that last night, once again, I neglected give you something. You see, tonight I am going dancing with one of my best friends here in Boston and I CAN'T WAIT! Sadly, a week of working with 18 first graders has left me feeling a little under the weather. So last night I hunkered down to fight off whatever this is so I can get my boogie on. Status update...still not feeling so hot. However, I am determined to beat this thing so I will be resting and reading most of the day.
Fear not, my fellow dancers, I cannot, will not, neglect you. I discovered this video of Robin Thicke performing Blurred Lines with the Roots and Jimmy Kimmel. There have been about a million different versions of this song as it exploded into a summer hit. I would like to point out, however, that I recognized its potential way back in May (because of my mom). Either way, enjoy this version of a boogie-perfect song. Maybe this is a new tradition? Wake up and boogie Saturday? Hmm. Maybe I need to blog about some books soon...
