it was amazing

Studying elementary literacy in school has given me a great opportunity to catch up on what my kids are reading these days. And folks, it is really different. What I have read just these past few months makes me sad that I was reading crap like Christopher Pike when I was in middle school. :)
This is my lastest read-Honeybee, by Naomi Shihab Nye. This is a collection of poetry for kids and adults. She writes outside of the catchy rhymes and funny characters. She writes about her experience growing up as an Arab-American, the Iraq War, Education, Americana culture, family and the environment. She has warmth and insight into the human spirit. I bought it over the weekend and I have read it about five times now. It's a beautiful collection that helps kids connect with the society that they are growing up in. through her poetry she promotes international peace and goodwill through the arts. Excellent. This will be a staple in my classroom for sure...
