Children’s Books for September Events
|September 14, 2009||Posted by Miss Shari under Children's Literature, Events & Celebrations|
The month of September is nearing it’s second phase and is filled with dates and celebrations where you can use children’s literature to supplement and teach your children. No doubt September is busy, with Labor day and back to school I would have to say this month is jam packed with events, news and holiday celebrations – comparible to Christmas and Easter—maybe?
Back to school is always a big event in the lives of children, parents and teachers. There are many back to school books and preschool books to help children, parents and teachers ease into the first days of school.
We all know that September 11th, 2001, has changed the face of social studies, history and literature classes in America’s school system. I recall when I was in 5th grade hearing that soon the Desert Storm – Iraq War would fill the pages of the history books. And I am sure more recent texts will soon have the Iraq War of 2003 – present soon on the desks of America’s [and the worlds] students.Some of the post 9/11 children’s literature shows a different face of days (and years) of service following the 09/11/01 attacks. Showing the resiliance and spirit of America’s youth.
Other events include, September 14th, Roal Dahl day. The late Roal Dahl is famous for works like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach and others. September is also National Piano Month. Some of the late and great birthdays include H.G. Wells, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Shel Silverstein.
Don’t forget to to have a ball this fall as autumn weather sets in and the days of summer are but just a memory.
