For 365 days I have been preparing for this moment! It's finally here! I am so excited to share my #pb10for10 list but even more excited to read everyone else's lists. A special thanks to Cathy Mere and Mandy Robek for starting this fun tradition.
This book will give you the courage to pay attention to your ideas and help make them reality.
From the author of The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. The world is made up of only numbers and after some time the numbers know they need something DIFFERENT. The book follows their journey through failure until the finally create something great!
Rollercoaster is an "oldie but a goodie". I don't leave home without it. It is the story of a little girl who is terrified to ride a roller coaster. The reader experiences her journey from fear to exhilaration. And, at the end, she wants to ride again!
Another great story of how failure and perseverance can lead to something GREAT!
Who wants a go-cart when you can have an AIRPLANE. Before you give your students directions to follow you should read this book!
This wordless picture book says it all. Imagination can take us on an amazing journey.
For those educators and students who think that one person can't make a difference...think again.
Another wordless picture book that can be used in the classroom to start a discussion about kindness and sacrifice.
A sweet little book that reminds everyone to spread some love.
I have saved the best for last. I have fallen in love with Hank and you will too. This is an absolute must for every classroom. And just when you think it can't get any better, he has a video...go get your tissues!
Because I love Hank SO much, I just have to let everyone know that Hank Has a Dream will be released on October 15, 2014. I'm not sure if I could possibly love the thought of this more!

I hope my blog posts inspire risk taking and new ways of thinking. I hope to connect with other educators on our journey to always do what's best for children.
