Last week's book adventures:
I had one of those weeks were I am not certain where the week went and why I didn't have a chance to read a lot but there you have it - only 15 books (11 picture books, 2 early readers, 1 early chapter book, and 1 other). And though I was surrounded by books and book people and book related activities at the LA Times Festival of Books this weekend, I never did get a chance to read.
Book Highlights from the Week:
The Obstinate Pen by Frank W. Dormer - This one was fun. A pen that writes what it wants to write rather than what you want it to write.
Wumbers by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, Illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld - More to come on this one. I will be posting a review this week.
Players in Pigtails by Shana Corey, Illustrated by Rebecca Gibbon - I wish I had read this one before Wednesday. I would have added this to my baseball themed Nonfiction Picture Book Wednesday. Fun learning a little bit about Women's baseball in the late 1940's.
Neo Leo & Now and Ben by Gene Barretta - This series is very informative and well done. One on Thomas Edison is coming this summer or fall. I learned a lot reading both of these books. I think 2nd graders on up will enjoy them.
Fancy Nancy: Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth by Jane O'Connor - Fancy Nancy is growing up and has become a detective. For fans of the picture books, who are now ready for an early chapter book featuring their favorite character.
F in Exams: The Funniest Test Paper Blunders by Richard Benson - Not a kids book, but High School students and adults will enjoy this quick read of answers that people used on tests.
So, what are you reading this week?
I am so hoping for a better reading week. Wish me luck!
