Not a huge literary week for me, but here is
what I managed to read....
One by Kathryn Otoshi
This one of my new favorite picture books to share with my 4th graders.
It sends a powerful message one person can make a difference in dealing with bullying.
Thank you to Carrie Gelston for recommending it to me.
by Jennifer and Matthew Holm
A very sweet graphic novel. #17 in this popular series!
Hattie Ever After
by Kirby Larsen
After finishing Hattie Big Sky last week, I could not
wait to read this book. Check back tomorrow for my review.
by Clare Vanderpool
Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy
by Gary D. Schmidt

I'm always on the lookout with great books that deal with bullying. I will look into One. Thanks for the recommendation (per Carrie)ReplyDelete
I think you'll like it Stacey. My 4th graders loved it, but younger students would too.Delete
I look forward to hearing your thoughts on Clare Vanderpool's new novel!ReplyDelete
I'm about halfway done and it is really interesting so far.Delete
I have Hattie Ever After in my classroom, especially since the first book was such a wonderful read. Now I am inspired to read this, too.ReplyDelete
It really brings closure to Hattie' story. Very well done.ReplyDelete
One is definitely one of my favorite picture books too. Love the lesson it teaches and the last line that resonates with readers. All I have to say is "Sometimes it just takes one," and my kids know exactly what I'm talking about.ReplyDelete
I agree Beth, what a simple yet powerful message.Delete
I am currently reading Hattie Ever After and loving it! So pleased that your class enjoyed One!ReplyDelete
For a week when it was minor reading you did rather well me thinks. I am sure Babymouse Extreme was heaps of fun, haven't read it yet. Also must pursue the Hattie books later in the year when I get a space. Heard lots of good things.ReplyDelete
I know what you mean by "when I get a space". So many books, so little time :)Delete
How are you finding Navigating Early? I've heard so many great reviews about the book, I'm scared to find it and read it. :) I haven't read any of the Hattie series yet so I feel like I'm missing out on a great deal. I've also been seeing the Babymouse series, and I know I just have to find it. I have a feeling my eleven year old daughter would love it. Have a great reading week!ReplyDelete
I am loving Navigating Early. It has a really plot that is very creative where there are so many coincidences among the characters. I am also partial to books set in Maine, since there are not very many of them. To honest, I am trying to get excited about Babymouse, but I'm just not as crazy about the books as many people are. They are cute, but I think I'm missing something.Delete
