It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 10-17-16


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?

    A perfect messed-up story sounds interesting- just from the title!

    Dory is right up there with Piper Green as some of my favourite fictional characters.

  4. I LOVED The Princess and the Pony – so many picture books encourage girls to be adventurous, tough and brave, which is great, but it’s also great to see male characters being sensitive, caring and sweet – we should all feel comfortable being our true selves!

    The Dory books are some of my favorites. I’m hoping to get some third graders reading her this year.

    The Dory book series are also my favorite book. Great story and even better characters.
