Spotlight Friday: 2017 Picture Books 12.30.16


Time to get ready for the weekend!
Kick up your feet and find a good place to read.
Sharing #booklove for your classroom or library.
Spotlighting a book or two because these books deserve the spotlight!


Hard to believe that we're looking at the start of a new year!
I don't know about you, but I'm ready for 2017!
Especially for the books.
This week I'll be spotlighting books to come.
I have pages written in my notebook for each month.
Pulling out just a few over the next few days.  
Lots more to come in 2017!

Today, picture book fun!
