Last week I read:
Criss Cross by Lynne Rae Perkins. On thursday, I had the opportunity to hear Ms. Perkins talk about her writing journey and meet her.
Kali’s Song by Jeanette Winter – I love the story and the illustrations. Check out Travis Jonker’s great review over at 100 Scope Notes
This week I’m reading:
Dead End in Norvelt – This year’s Newbery Winner by Jack Gantos
Hunger Games – this is a reread in preparation for the discussion in our children’s lit class on Thursday and the movie.
