Though I did not have a lot of time for reading during the week, I did find some time to catch up on some reading this weekend. It feels good to get back into the swing of things.
Here is what jumped out of the stack...
by Barbara Brauner & James Mattson; Illustrated by Abigail Halpin (Disney Hyperion, May 14, 2014) - I re-read this one in preparation for our Literacy Café with authors Brauner and Mattson. It is such a fun read and the students loved it.
by Doreen Cronin; Illustrations by Kevin Cornell (Atheneum Books for Young Readers, April 8, 2014) - I love this series and the chicks who get into all sorts of mischief. This is a lot of fun and would make a great read aloud to first and second graders.
by Judith Viorst; Illustrated by Kevin Cornell (Atheneum Books for Young Readers, April 8, 2014) Well, Lulu is back and this time she has a babysitter while her parents are out of town. In typical Lulu fashion, her babysitter must be a bit different in order to keep one step ahead of Lulu. Another great read aloud for first or second graders.
by Dav Pilkey; Illustrated by Dan Santat (Scholastic, April 29, 2014) - Dan Santat provides full-color artwork for Dav Pilkey's Ricky Ricotta series. Lots of fun and great for second and third graders.
by Lita Judge (Atheneum Books for Young Readers, April 15, 2014) - Fans of Lita Judge will enjoy reading this one about a penguin "who believes he has the soul of an eagle." With some help from friends, this penguin has his dream come true.
by Angela Johnson; Illustrated by E.B. Lewis (Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, May 6, 2014) - This book imagines what it must have been like when slaves first learned that they were free. The resources at the end were a nice addition.
by Kelly DiPucchio; Illustrated by Christian Robinson (Atheneum Books for Young Readers, June 3, 2014) - This book is not just for dog lovers, but anyone interested in celebrating his or her own uniqueness.
So, what are you reading?
