NEW- Blue Hair and the Ghost: A preschool teacher and librarian take on children’s books
In need of a great children’s book suggestions, or creative activities to engage your young readers? This alumni-created blog is your one stop shop!

NEW-Resource for selecting texts and developmentally appropriate activities
Blue Hair and the Ghost picks the minds of a preschool teacher and children’s librarian.  We wade through the (often overwhelming!) ocean of children’s books to pick out books that we like, have used, or have seen used and pair it with an activity that is developmentally appropriate! We aim to make children’s literature more accessible to all.
