Spotlight Friday - the first #classroombookaday selections 8.25.17

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!

I am really excited this year because I get to do #classroombookaday!  Since I'm not a classroom teacher, it's something I've always been sad to not be a part of, but lucky for me this year I have a couple of teachers who are willing to partner up with me and share their class.  If you would like to see the books we're reading throughout the year, follow the hashtag #mv_reads.  

Here are some books I'm using the first 10 days of school.
