Teacher Tuesday

Laura Cooper, a teacher at Queen Anne Elementary in Seattle, is today’s guest and one of my favorites so far because she forwarded the Teacher Tuesday quiz to several friends of hers and got them to play, too. Feel free to do the same!

Laura, please fill in the blank: You should never read and blank at the same time.

You should never read and cook at the same time.  (Speaking from experience, it could result in a small fire.)

If you were invited to be on Oprah, what book would you bring her? 

I would bring her both Brown Girl Dreaming, by Jacqueline Woodson, and Deborah Wiles’ Revolution.  It’s a great pairing.  

What’s the funniest book you’ve read?

The funniest book I’ve read (recently) Battle Bunny by Jon Sciezka/Mac Barnett. 

The saddest?

The saddest book I’ve read is Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes (First book I ever cried over)  

Favorite reading snack/beverage?

Tea  (specifically Vanilla Apricot white tea by Tazo)

What’s next on your TBR list?  

Stella by Starlight by Sharon Draper followed by All the Bright Places, by Jennifer Niven.

Teachers, librarians, reading coaches, principals, custodians, lunch ladies, anyone with school connections: Please play along! Email me here and I’ll get you the questions so you, too, can be featured on Teacher Tuesday.

    I see we have similar tastes in books. I have the same books on my TBR list and I agree that Battle Bunny is a terribly funny book. Thanks for the post.
