Literacy Thursday: Baghead

**Welcome to Literacy Thursdays. This post is designed to highlight some of our favorite books in hopes that you will blog about yours. We are always looking for new books to discover. Literacy is so important and even at the youngest of ages is crucial to development. If you don't have children of your own volunteer at a school, read to a neighborhood child, but get involved. It's a great way to share quality time with the youngest of our society.

Here's the play by play: You blog about your book. Give me a shout out in your blog by creating a link to my blog and using my Literacy button. Then at the bottom of my post, you will find Mr. Linky. Sign your name and add the web address of your post. Your post will automatically be linked to mine leaving a list for all to peruse. I hope you will join us.**

Today's book is random. I found it in the library tonight as I was scouring the shelves for a "moving " book. Again, I was intrigued by the cover--a brown paper cover with 2 circle cut outs for eyes. Baghead by Jarrett J. Krosoczka is the story of a little boy, Josh who had a big idea. A big, brown, bag idea. Josh wears a brown paper bag over his head all day on Wednesday--to eat breakfast, to get on the bus, to give his book report at school, to play soccer. Finally, his little sister asks him why he wore the brown paper bag all day. Answer: sorry, I'm not going to spoil it. Go check it out!

That looks like a cute book. I love random finds at the library that turn out to be awesome. It's like finding buried treasure.
