Big news at EdGeeks today! Marisa’s Dream Library has been updated. I am proud to say that Late Elementary Super Series section 1 is finished! I am referring to it as section 1 because the section was so large that I divided it into two parts alphabetically (A-J and K-Z.) I guess that’s what happens when there are so many fantastic writers out there so thank you to our authors. A special shout out to Bryan who worked on this project with me…I could never have done it without him. Enjoy and spread the word to your friends.

Judy Blume had me at Fudge! I just love this series — I loved it when I was a kid and I love it today! Judy Blume has such fun characters and what I love about this series is that it keeps kids wanting more. This series has always helped me teach young readers that a great character can make you want to read all the time. I’m featuring the box set because I’ve never met a reader who had enough after Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. And, yes, I know Freckle Juice isn’t part of the Fudge series, but I love it and after all it is Marisa’s Dream Library.

I have fantastic news this morning! Phase 1 of my Dream Library is complete. Phase 1 consists of the Early Elementary Super Series section of my library, which is now fully uploaded and browsable. In this section you will find a variety of book series for early readers, and if you click on a series you can see all of the different books in the collection! If you see something you must have, click on the picture of the book to buy it on Amazon.com.
If all of my dreams came true and I was given the luxuries of unlimited space, bookshelves and books, I would put each book series into a bin and label each bin with the series title. When I am finished with the preliminary plans for the library, I will begin uploading label templates that I will make available for download. Of course, this might be Phase 365! These are my favorite bins (and I’m speaking from a ton of bin experience) because they come in two sizes…one is perfect for chapter books and the other is excellent for storybooks.
I also recommend Really Good Stuff for bins, baskets and library organizational systems!
Thank you for your readership and patience as I build what I hope will be a dreamy resource for all you teachers and families out there. Next up, Phase 2…Late Elementary Super Series.
Below are my top 10 favorite books posted to date. Enjoy!
1. Mr. Nobody…because it’s very deep.
|2. The Pigeon Finds a Hotdog…because it’s so New York|
|3. Morris Has a Cold…because it gives me childhood laughing memories.|
|4. Click Clack Moo, Cows That Type…because the humor is so adult but kid’s always seem to love it.|
|5. I Spy…because it’s captivating and fun.|
|6. Little Miss Bossy…because it taught me what I didn’t want to be.|
|7. Olivia Forms a Band…because the illustrations are stunning as always and I love the addition of blue in this story.|
|8. Super Fly Guy…because I love a good “Fly on the Wall” lunch story.|
|9. Poppleton and Friends…because I remember one of my co-teachers reading Cherry Sue’s part with a funny voice and all of our kids giggling…|
