I chose A Dog Called Kitty as my all-time favorite read aloud. It's such a sad book and I cry every time I read it, year after year, but I keep reading because I love it so much.

I received the nicest email from April at The Idea Backpack while I was on vacation last week. She wrote to say that she was using some of my frames and borders from TpT in one of her projects. A girl after my own heart, she’s organizing all of her curriculum into super cute binders and using my frames to create the covers. Here’s the sweetest part… she asked me which set I would like to have for free because she had used my frames. Of course she didn’t have to do that, but it’s just one more example of why I love our little networking community here in the blogging world. We’re real teachers helping other real teachers and reaching a countless number of students in the process. I love that! You can see all of April's covers in her TpT store and even pick up the holiday set as a freebie.
