Playing catch up

Summer used to be play time for me. Now it seems that all I do is read, blog, teach, grade, lather, rinse, repeat. So, here are some books I read a while back that never made it to the blog for some reason (must have been lathering then).

A IS FOR MUSK OX by Erin Cabatingan with illustrations by Matthew Myers. Roaring Brook, October 2012.

A is for apple
Just will not work anymore
Since musk ox appeared. <395>

APPLE PIE ABC by Alison Murray. Disney/Hyperion, 2012.

Learn the alphabet
From A to Z and beyond
With the help of pie. <396>


  1. Dr. L.,
    You've described my life perfectly in your post--except I'm taking the class instead of teaching it. Summers aren't vacations anymore for me. You are right about that. Thanks for all you share. Love reading both your blogs!

  2. I love of the a is for musk ox fits right in with those send-ups like Z is for Moose and A is for Salad! I know, I know. . .I repeated this from Facebook, but I wanted the students to see these ABC "ladder" books.

    I recently found the Steve Martin ABC book and loved it. These really are treasures.
