Everything is ALWAYS better with a book!

When I was trying to decide what to name this blog, I kept coming back to the name, better with a book.  I can think of so many things in life that are much more tolerable and relaxing with a book.  For me, the beach, waiting rooms, long plane rides and cozy couches are always more enjoyable with a book. And of course, a lesson plan is always better with a special book introduction!  But what do the kids think?  I asked my two daughters, ages 3 and 5, and some other special people in my life. Here's what we all came up with:

Top Ten Things that are Better with a Book
1.  Bedtime
2.  Long car rides
3.  Indoor recess
4.  Special time spent with grandparents and other relatives
5.  Rainy days
6.  A cup of hot chocolate
7.  A difficult time or situation
8.  A school lesson
9.  A sibling's sports event
10. Quiet time

I'm not sure where this blogging road will take me, or how I will organize my thoughts and ideas about children's books just yet.  However, I do know that I would love for teachers and parents alike to utilize this site to uncover the magic of a book and make all events in life just a little bit BETTER!
