I have hit the delete button about 7 times. I keep going back and forth whether or not to start this blog. I have the best intentions to keep it going forever, but life sometimes gets in the way. So here is my promise: I, Ramona Q, am going to try REALLLLY hard to keep this blog going in order to share my love of reading and in hopes my love will shine on to many more readers.
I was the kid that smiled as she opened a book as a present. I have this small ok... REALLY BIG obsession with children's books. I might or might not have over 1,200 books. It's like I have a mini school library in my office. I have always loved books. A year ago, I earned my masters in Reading Education and have really taken an interest in the importance of reading-more importantly, the importance of using children's literature in the classroom. I will not get on my soap box tonight, but- it is SOOOOO important to read to your child. Like Dr. S says, "You're never too old, too wacky, too wild to pick up a book and read to a child." With all this said....
About a month ago, I decided to start Ramona Recommends on my instagram account. Every Tuesday, I recommend a children's book to use in classrooms or at home. BUT, since I am private, it only allows a small fraction of readers to see my recommendations-which includes my mom,a few friends who are mommies, my teacher friends, and friends who honestly probably scroll right thru that day:). I have started a "ramonarecommends" Instagram account. Follow me! So, here I am tonight sitting on the floor as I watch the UofA/UCLA football game starting a new blog called Ramona Recommends.
Here are my intentions for this blog.....
#To provide teachers, parents, and book lovers with recommendations of my favorite children's books. I will recommend new and old titles.
#Every Tuesday join me to learn about a new book to add to your shelf.
#Special recommendations will appear :) I love surprises.
#I will always try to link to Amazon or Barnes N' Noble for easy shopping access. FYI- I receive no compensation for this blog. It is just a personal blog to share my love for books.
Thank you for stopping by and reading. Share in the magic.
