Books I finished last week:
Write This Down by Claudia Mills (Out September 27, 2016)
This book is perfect for students who love to write. The main character Autumn would love to be a published writer. However, she has to make a hard choice between her passion for writing and her family.
Waiting for Snow by Marsha Diane Arnold and illustrations by Renata Liwska (Out Nov. 1, 2016)
This book is adorable. I think students could totally relate to being impatient about the first snow coming just like Badger. I love the fun ways Badger’s friends try to help him get the snow to come. A great book to use to discuss the seasons and patience.
This Book is Out of Control! by Richard Byrne (Out Oct. 4, 2016)
I love reading This Book Just Ate My Dog and We’re in the Wrong Book to my students in the library. So when I heard This Book is Out of Control! was coming out I was excited. The students are going to love the third book in the series. Ben, Bella and their dog are back for another adventure. This time the remote doesn’t seem to be working for Ben and Bella’s toy. Or is it? Students will love this fun, interactive story!
Seven and a Half Tons of Steel by Janet Nolan and Illustrated by Thomas Gonzalez
The USS New York is a special navy ship. Why? It all has to do with September 11, 2001! A wonderful nonfiction story about how wreckage from the World Trade Center was used in the making of a very important ship. A ship that will always remember.
So what have you enjoyed reading recently?
