This is my second time reading War Brothers. SO powerful. I’ll be sharing parts of this one with you shortly.
I couldn’t tell if this was blasphemous at first… but then I just settled on amusing. An interesting, quick read. What if God…Got a dog, went to beauty school, made spaghetti, or caught a cold? Interesting, playful writing by Ms. Rylant.
This is the second picture book I read aboutthe poet E. E. Cummings. A River of Words is the other. I liked them both.
The illustrations are lovely and the text is informative and playful. Do yourself a favor and read this one.

I’m enjoying getting back into the spirit of Wonder reading Charlotte’s story. I didn’t realize whose story it was—I mean, who was Shingaling? An alien? This was a pleasant surprise.
