Happy Monday! We’re celebrating by seeing cute kids caught in the act … of READING. Photos this week are from reader Lucas and children’s book author Erica S. Perl. Educators are bemoaning the decline in literacy simply because kids are reading less! You parents who read this post and submit photos are the true heroes by teaching your children to love to read! It’s the gift that keeps on giving!
This week we have picture book author Erica S. Perl with two great photos (and more to come as she generously sent me four!). Marci, a Special Education Reading Recovery teacher helps kids learn to read and comprehend even if they are up to 5 years behind their peers! She’s true unsung hero in our community! Finally, thank you to Capability:Mom with some cuties reading.

The book celebrates The Teacher Who Makes a Difference!

My five-year-old son selected most of these funny picture books because they make us both laugh!
