FIRST—

reading&tweeting

Last Friday during the book conversations, I had a group discussing both Bigger Than a Breadbox and One for the Murphys. I sent out this tweet, and… well, see for yourself:

My 7th grader finished Walk Two Moons last week and we tweeted the author, Sharon Creech:

… round 1 of Theme essays…and now I’ll be grading the finals.
But I found time for a book Mr. B brought in for me to see—one of the Caldecott honor books for this year:

  2. David –
    Thank you for alerting me and giving me a copy of CINDER. It really held my interest and I read the whole thing plus the author interview and the prequel chapter to Cinder. The book may be classified as a “young adult” fantasy drama, but it sure satisfied my “old adult” tastes. I may be almost 74, but I am young at heart.
    Bring on the sequel!
    Dad

    • You + Ananda + both girls are becoming LunarHeads. I love it.

      I knew you’d like the SCI-fi aspect of it. Now—just wait. Book 2 might be better.

      Thanks for commenting!

      ❤️David
