Book Journey. Jen & Kellee from Teach Mentor Texts have adapted this to focus on Picture Books to Young Adult Books.
It seems that I am going to have a few more slow reading weeks until the new school year settles in.
Here are a couple of highlights from the past week:
Olivia and the Fairy Princesses by Ian Falconer - Fans of Olivia is going to love this latest story.
Glamorous Glasses by Barbara Newman - One cousin needs glasses but doesn't want to wear them. The other cousin wishes she had glasses. Kind of fun to see what happens when they trade. Great ending too.
I Like Old Clothes by Mary Ann Hoberman, Illustrated by Patrice Barton - This one is just a wonderful story. A great way of looking at old clothes.
Robot Zombie Frankenstein by Annette Simon - Fun, quirky, and brightly colored.
All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome by Kathy Hoopmann - Brilliant way of looking at Asperger Syndrome accompanied by the pictures of cats and cat behavior.
So what are you reading this week?
