It’s Monday – what are you reading?? This is a fun meme at “Teach Mentor Texts“.
On our trip to Montreal last week I was able to read
“A Snicker of Magic” by Natalie Lloyd.
There has been so much discussion about this book. I did enjoy it, but then I love fantasy and sci-fi. This had a touch of that.Loved that Felicity was able to overcome her fear and perform.
“The Granny Game” by Beverly Lewis
This was a quick, fun read. Having written stories with grandmothers I am drawn to stories about them. This one didn’t disappoint. I enjoyed the two different grandmothers and their interactions with the children.
Today, while at the school where I tutor for “Strong Start”, I was able to read 2 picture books:
“The Secret of the Village Fool” by Rebecca Upjohn
It was excellent – a retelling of the story of how Anton Suchinski saved 6 Jews during WWII, in Poland. As Anton said,
“Life is precious. No one should take it away.”
“Brief Thief” by Michael Escoffier
Completely different – funny, rude and unexpected. Boys will especially love it!
