Books I finished last week:
The Princess and the Pony by Kate Beaton
This is such an adorable and funny book. I highly recommend it as a read aloud. The Princess and the Pony was at my Scholastic book fair and it was a big hit.
Dory Fantasmagory: Dory Dory Black Sheep by Abby Hanlon
I love Dory. She is so quirky, creative and funny. Abby Hanlon really understands kids as a former first grade teacher. I know this series is a hit as a read aloud! Run don’t walk to pick up the series now. And while you are running….run over to All The Wonders for a great podcast and more resources about Dory Fantasmagory!
A Perfectly Messed-Up Story by Patrick McDonnell
My mentor and fellow librarian, Travis Jonker recommended that I read A Perfectly Messed-Up Story at the beginning of the year to talk about book care in the library. There could not be a more perfect book for this discussion. The students just love the book. It is hilarious and shows how messed up a book can get if you don’t take care of it. A great read aloud for the library!
So what have you enjoyed reading recently?
