Read aloud linky party from Miss Nelson

I'm linking up with Miss Nelson From Run! Miss Nelson's Got the Camera, and Jeannie from Kindergarten Lifestyle and their super cute blogs for a read aloud party. I love Jennifer Ward. She came to our school to visit once and was SO cute and personable. 
 Over in the Garden
 I also love all things Kevin Henkes. 

Ok, that sounds weird. Books, I meant. I'm not a stalker. 
Also Don and Audrey Wood- love them. "The Napping House" is one of my favorite picture books. And for those of you who categorize your libraries by AR level, Common Core Standards, and everything do you do it???!! 

One of my new favorite books is "Mrs. Spitzer's Garden". Have you seen this book? So cute.
And who can forget Olivia? Ian Falconer must be hilarious in real life. 

Here's a Venn diagram activity I did with Mrs. Spitzer's Garden. It might be hard to see, but the petals on each side of the flower compare me to Mrs. Spitzer, and the ones in the middle are the same about us.

The one that says "has gray hair" should be WAY over on Mrs. Spitzer's side.  (:  But notice the "has old feet".   ????!!!!!   And apparently we both have hair that sticks out. (:

Thanks for reading!
