A Song of Frutas @margaritapoet & Sara Palacios is such a delightful PB, tinged w nostalgia. On the surface- a memory of singing vendors when visiting Abuelo; but so much deeper to dive and uncover! Beautiful, lyrical figurative language woven throughout.
Alias Anna @sHood125 @grgdawson was a SPECTACULAR read! Incredible true story, written stirringly in verse, about Zhanna, a Jewish music prodigy in Russia during WWII. Must find a way to live, w her sister, against all odds. #BookAllies
Our first 2 read-alouds this year! We are getting to know ea other as a family; & Ss wrote their own letters to their teachers. ❤️ illustrations & engaging, comforting rhyme. @PS174Q @LL20
Adventures to School @baptistepaul @Miranda_Paul @isabelmgart is a delightful book, replete with info about different, unusual ways kids get to school! I know our class will love! @PS174Q @LL20 Thanks @Kpteach5 for the rec!
30,000 Stitches @amandadavisart was the perfect book to read today #September11th. Through the story of the iconic flag’s reparative journey, we are inspired by the unity, fortitude, perseverance that came through.
I couldn’t put Champion’s Quest @franklcole down! 4 kids stumble into a shop and spin a die- now they must become players in a real life quest til the end! Like Jumanji; The Gauntlet @KarunaRiazi. Very well-written, highly engaging. #BookAllies
I LOVED Hollow Chest @britasandstrom so much! A haunting story of a boy whose beloved brother comes back injured from war, missing his heart. Charlie undertakes to meet w war wolves to find a way to get it back. Allegorical, Little Prince-esque.
I was taking down some wall art (affixed w heavy-duty double-sided tape) in my LR so I could put up 4 canvases I painted. And... my wall is totally ruined. Getting spackle tmrw. Will def have to paint that wall. 😣😬😖 (Canvases waiting their turn below...)
Just finished Bea Is for Blended audio w my son. I can’t speak highly enough about this book. If you want #MGLit that fosters empathy, using your voice, inclusion, building a team (which is the same sign for family!)— you will def want this!
Pighearted @Alextheadequate is an unusual story about a boy w a heart condition who needs a transplant... from a pig who was genetically altered to grow a human heart for him! As they become friends (no, brothers), each has to decide what to do. #BookAllies
Me vs the Multiverse 2 @SGWilson_Earth1 was a great sequel, w lots of humor, suspense, surprise to keep you on your toes when Meade encounters the “Mes” cast of characters debating how to fix the Rip! #BookAllies
It came!! I had to persevere relentlessly to find one back in stock (& checkout within a split second lest it revert to out of stock)- can’t wait to display in our classroom! @LL20 @target #ChristianRobinsonxTarget (corner protectors still on)
