Last Week I Finished Reading....
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
I honestly didn't think this book was for me, but I loved it and downloaded the next book on my Kindle.
Jumping The Scratch by Sarah Weeks
I enjoyed this book which is well-written and narrated by the main character who has a terrible secret. Not appropriate for elementary students.
Ian's Walk by Laurie Lears
A very sweet story about a girl whose brother has autism. This story hits very close to home for me. Great short read aloud.
Missing May by Cynthia Rylant
As part of my quest to read the Newbery winners.
In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson
by Bette Bao Lord
