It has been a few weeks since I have shared some of what I have been reading. With all the picture books read at school and fun reading during the March Break, I have a number of books to share.
Read Alouds from School:
"A Chance to Shine" by Steve Seskin and Allen Shamblin
By far my favourite, it is by the authors of "Don't Laugh at Me", both a book and video.
"Fancy Nancy" by Jane O'Connor
"Kate and the Sunflowers" by James Mayhew
Lovely romp through art of the impressionists. If only e could step into paintings!
"Sorry" by Trudy Ludwig
"The Worst Name in 3rd Grade" by Debbie Dadey
How would you like a name like Bridgett Butt? The class enjoyed it.
"Mean, Mean, Maureen Green" by Judy Cox
Solving problems and facing up to fears and bullies.
I have thoroughly enjoyed all the novels I have read this past month.
I finally read the last 2 books (of the ones I needed to finish all of the books in the series) of the mystery series on Gamache, by Louise Penny:
"The Murder Stone"
"The Brutal Telling"
Here next book comes out in August - can't wait!
I finally finished "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett and loved it.
"Remarkable Creatures" by Tracy Chevalier (about real women fossil hunters of the 1800s)
"Mercy" by Jodi Picoult
"Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safron Faer
"The Fiction Class" by Susan Breen"
I am currently reading:
"Zeitoun" by Dave Eggers (for our social justice book club) Very interesting, about a real life Muslim family caught up in Katrina)
So many books to read! I am enjoying the challenges I am involved in and making headway.
