My Favorite Back to School Book

Are you looking for a fabulous book to read to your students as you head back to school? I highly recommend Hands As Warm As Toast by Lisa Himle.  I read it to my class at the beginning of the year and at the end of the year.  I also read it to individual students when they are feeling "nervous" about trying something new.

The author, Lisa Himle, is my friend and a well respected colleague in the building where I work.   When I told I her I would like to blog about her book, she generously donated 3 copies of the book for me to giveaway.   I will be hosting a giveaway with her book and a gift card soon!

You can read a bit about it on the Mitten Press website.  You can click the image below to purchase the book on Amazon and read more reviews.

I also want to thank everyone who made a purchase from my store during the Christmas in July sale. If you missed my holiday hop freebie,  you can find it here.  Stay tuned for more details about the giveaway!
