I am super excited to announce that starting Monday September 2nd, Mondays with Mira will be hosted by the fabulous Mandy Yates, K-12 reading specialist, who also shares a love of multicultural children's literature and just plain fun kid's books!! Mandy will mostly be writing about her experiences of using children's literature as a specialist and what writers and illustrators can do to make their work easier to read and understand. She'll be sharing great picture, chapter, and middle grade books that she uses to inspire her students that reading can be awesome as well as other tips and resources!!!
