All things literacy — Authors, Books, Connections . . .

Thursday, December 14, 2006


If you give children toys as gifts they will treasure toys; if you give books they will treasure books. They will value what you value. I often package a book and a practical item such as cookie cutters, t-shirts, themed gift baskets etc. as a family gift.

Those of you who are fans of Nicole Rubel's work might be interested in the t-shirts, mousepads etc. that you can order -- great reading and more-- I particularly like the "I am a Reading Kid" (note Ralph in the book) and the "Libraries Bring You the World"

An older tie-in for the "I am a Reading Kid" theme is the "DORK" products -- I am a Dork* a Dangerously Outrageous Reading Kid -- check out
