Help PreK Build Our Classroom Library!

We know some kids who are getting new books this Christmas! If you haven't checked it out yet, DonorsChoose.org is a great way to give a donation right in your community--to a new teacher, a particular age group, a special project. You chose what is important to you and make it happen. This year Wordplay Books and Media is giving the gift of books to a preschool class in Baltimore. Merry Christmas, kiddos!

Do you remember the first time you held a book? Often, for my students, this is not a reality until they enter school. Many of my young learners have never read a story or held a book before. Help... My students need 32 story books that will help them connect thematic material in meaningful, fun and...

The National Book Festival begins tomorrow on the National Mall and we are so excited! Amid all of the books and merriment you will find authors Margaret Atwood (who's work, truth be told, I find rather creepy), Giada DiLaurentis--who is being presented as a children's author, and writer and illustrator, Brian Pinkney! Check out all of the festivities and a full schedule here: http://www.loc.gov/bookfest/

We just donated a case of children's books to a new first grade teacher and her students in Vienna, VA!

We still have more to share--let us know if you need them.

Wordplay is back up and online! After a longer hiatus than we thought, the books are back on shelves and available via the interweb :) We have made some changes--like liquidating most of our children's books. If you know of a classroom or child that is in need of books, message us. We are always happy to share the joy of books with kids.

E-Book Ruling Gives Amazon an Advantage

E books are the new paperbacks...and despite what George Orwell thought, about the former neither will be the ruination of books as we know them...what do you think?

A federal judge’s antitrust finding against Apple over e-book prices underscores how much the book industry has changed and bolsters the advantage held by the online retailer.

'Cinnamon And Gunpowder': Haute Cuisine On The High Seas : NPR

Well folks, I haven't posted in a while. Wordplay HQ has had a bit of a flood, so we are slogging and sloshing through the aftermath and off line for a while. BUT, all of this has me thinking that it is time to renew a tradition I started years and years ago. I would pick an author or a theme and spend a whole year immersing myself in books on that topic. Two of my favorites were FDR and Louia May Alcott. My new topic is inspired by the inches of water that have recently been vacated from our floor--The High Seas. The first book is The Drums of Autumn, the third book in the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. The second will be the book below. Check out the link and see if you want to read along. And if you have other reccommendations for books on the topic of epic adventures on the water, please pass them along!

When a pirate kidnaps a chef to serve her own gustatory pleasures, his creativity is taxed as he prepares feasts — like a Regency-era Iron Chef — using only shipboard supplies.

Look at all those books--they are headed into artistic expression, never to be read again. I am torn; I love books and I love art. What do you think about that?

Rebound: Dissections and Excavations in Book Art opens today at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. Some of the recycled books used in the exhibit were locally sourced through organizations such as Charleston Library Friends. A gallery walk-through with the artists and opening reception start tonight at 5pm. Admission is free.

Impatience kind of defeats the point, doesn't it?

Spoleto Festival USA 2013 » REBOUND: DISSECTIONS AND EXCAVATIONS IN BOOK ART

The first line about this exhibit says; "In an increasingly digital world, books are becoming less and less relevant." I tend to disagree. My books will never need a charger and no pop up will ever interrupt my thought through the pages.

Alas, I still want to see the exhibit to see what they have transformed these tomes into.
