It’s Monday – time to share what you have been reading, from picture books to YA. This is a fun meme hosted by Jen at “Teach Mentor Texts”
I haven’t posted for a few weeks, but I have been reading a number of books.
MG/YA – as I am studying these books for writing courses, I am trying to read a range of books
The French Isles by Claire Mowat.
As part of a reading challenge “Amy’s Marathon of Books”, I am trying to read a book/author from each province and territory. Claire lives in both Ontario and Nova Scotia.
This was a sequel to a previous book and takes place in Newfoundland. I enjoyed it and actually learned a bit about the French isles off of Newfoundland.
Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume
I finally read this, although I have read a number of Blume’s books. Peter certainly has his hands full with fudge. Just okay for me.
Ten Ways to Make My Sister Disappear by Norma Fox Mazer
Another story about troubles with a sibling.but also with friends. A good story.
Marty McGuire by Kate Messner
I have been wanting to read this for awhile and i enjoyed it. Marty is quite the character.
Galileo’s Journal 1609 – 10 by Jeanne K. Pettenati
An excellent creative non-fiction. Well researched and illustrated (by Paolo Rui)
The Road to Afghanistan by Linda Granfield
Another excellent creative non-fiction. A book that will introduce children to the mission of Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan.
