#IMWAYR It’s Monday What Are You Reading?


It’s that time of year again!

No, not fall. Not hockey season, either–though actually it is both of those.

It’s time to select the titles for our school-wide Celebration of Reading.


In the past we’ve done a One School One Book celebration for our K-5 building. We’ve shared Hans Christian Anderson fairy tales, A Cricket in Times Square, Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, and most recently A Snicker of Magic. It’s not easy selecting titles that will engage readers from 5 years old through eleven…AND keep families reading for the entire month of March. We had some terrific titles and generous authors (Thank you @_natalielloyd and @CGrabenstein!).

But this year, based on feedback from families and our PTO, we’re changing the celebration.


Ready to hear what it will be?

Ta Da

…A month-long #ClassroomBookaday challenge


The new celebration will be complete with classroom challenge, family #bookaday challenges, and a Stock Up Celebration for families at our local library after hours (technically just on their late night).

So this Booktober I’m reading scads and scads of picture book #bookaday candidates.


Hint: We liked these a lot! (Only 2 ½ more weeks of books to choose)


Today I’ll be returning the first test batch and scouring the stacks for recommended titles by authors H-Z…or maybe not so far. We’ll see how many I can stack in my arms after my bag is full!

Happy reading!

  1. I’ve been thinking a lot about doing something with book a day. I love this alternative to one book, one school. I just shared your post with our team. You have some great titles there. Have you read Kate Klise’s new picture book, Stay. It’s one of my new favorites!
