Jen at “Teach Mentor Texts” hosts a wonderful meme for sharing books read. Most days this past week I have read a book and have enjoyed them all.
My favourite was:
Absolutely Almost by Lisa Graff
What an incredible read. I absolutely loved this book and Albie. A good companion to “Wonder”
My Travelin’ Eye by Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw
So enjoyed the story of Jenny Sue, who sees the world in such a delightful, unique way. A great book to share with children with eye problems or anyone who is considered “different” Artwork throughout the book is extraordinary.
Coyote’s New Suit by Thomas King and illustrated by Johnny Wales
Such a delightful tale told by Thomas King about Coyote and his new clothes. Quite funny as well.Really enjoyed this story.
On My Honor by Marion Dane Bauer
This was a Newbery Honor book in 1987 and it still resonates today. I was not prepared for the ending but did enjoy this book about Joel and Tommy and they decisions they must live with.
