About meI am a professor of education at Southern Adventist University. In addition to teaching Survey of Children's Literature I also teach many literacy courses. I always use children's literature in my teaching--both at the college level and when doing demonstration teaching in classrooms with elementary children.

About my libraryI have created this library as a resource for teachers to refer to. When reading children's literature I first read to enjoy and appreciate the ideas. But I also read like a teacher of reading and writing. The tags I have indentified are ways I could extend the book to teaching both reading and writing. Comments include additional ideas for writing. I often use this database myself when planning lessons. What an amazing resource to click on a tag and have a list of titles available. Although you may not own most of my books you can take a list to the local library and they can get them for your classroom use.

Hi Dr. Bishop! I actually read Beasts by Bunch when I went to visit the Iverson's, my boyfriend's family. He really liked that book when he was little a little boy and he wanted me to read it. It is so cute! The book is filled with poems about what different animals are called when they are in a group. For example, lions are prides and crows are murders (I thought that was kinda creepy) and peacocks are a parliament and so many more are mentioned. Apparently, they have made a c.d. of the book and as I was looking for it that was almost all I could find. It is an old book, 1987 I think. The only reason I managed to get a hold of it was because Carrie, my boyfriend's sister, kept it from when they were 3 or 4 years old. I looked on Amazon but it says it is currently unavailable. Maybe I could get Carrie to bring it down so you can read it.
I'm so sorry! Don't worry, i plan to enter all of it in within this break..I have actually read books, but just not entered all of it..
Have you read "Luba: The Angel of Bergen_Belsen" I read it the other day trying to find a book that my tutee might like and it is a really good book...If you haven't read it I suggest that you do. It is about wwii.
Hey Dr. Bishop,
The book "what do illustrators do" was a really great book. I actually learned a lot from it. I got it from the library at 4 corners.
Hi Dr. Bishop!
Thanks for the info on the book Potatoes, Potatoes! That's really interesting that the author is a Holicost survivor!! It makes the book even more interesting to read!! I will definitely have to look for that book that you mentioned!
Thanks again for the comment and suggestions of books to read!
Have a great week!
Hi Dr. Bishop,

Thank you for the comments and the encouragement in class and out. I will continue to write the comments and check to make sure the tags are well placed. Thank you again. By the way, your database looks very good. I am very proud of you. :)
I went to Barnes and Nobles to get all my books. That store provides easy access to many different books.
Dr. Bishop,
I actually don't mind reading, it is mostly writing that I don't like in fact I hate writing. I have a terrible time with spelling...thankful word has spell check. I might not love reading as much as maybe Sarah, who can read almost any book she can get her hands on, but I find some books interesting and will read for fun. I usually like stories that are true or true to life. I love historical fiction, stories about sports, and animals. But if the book doesn't get me in the first couple pages I have a hard time continuing and I will usually choose going outside to do something over sitting with a book.
oh man I'm loving reading all these books for your class. Thanks for also reminding me of this site, I apparently had an account and forgot about it. My goal is to read so many Madeline L'Engle books that her name will show up as a most popular author on my librarything. =) I wrote an e-mail to Denise Flemming, and she responded. That was slightly amusing. She answered some questions I had on her illustrations.
Hi Krystal,
It's Jeanie Boyd. I got on librarything this summer and have fallen in love with it. I put all my books on it (1445) and think it will really help me be more organized in my teaching this year. Look me up at jboyd.
