Welcome to Growing Book by Book!  My name is Jodie.  I have been an educator for 17 years.  I taught 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades for eight years.  I then moved into a variety of roles including Reading Specialist, Literacy Coach, Curriculum Coordinator, Federal Programs Coordinator and most recently Head of School.  I have also had the pleasure of teaching several teaching reading courses at a local university to education majors.  Currently, I’m staying at home with my youngest readers, my sons.  Early Literacy is my passion and I hope to inspire you to cultivate readers in your life.

  1. What a great time to start an educational blog! Tips on knowing when to start your child in Kindergarten and pre-school would interest my friends.

  2. Love the notebooks from Scissor Savvy. My 5 year old daughter, Sky, loves dictating stories to me that she writes in her head and will sometimes write her own by stretching out the words. 2 of the notebooks caught my eye – Where Did the Baby Go and Rainy Day Play Book, because the titles alone would get some amazing stories out of her.
    Great ideas for gifts!

  3. Jodi,
    Thank you for the comment on my blog. I didn’t post it, because I don’t like message in my About section (can’t figure out how to get rid of it). I browsed through your blog and it looks like we share some same interests. Good luck with your blog. Joined yours. — Patricia
