Wow! I have been a reading machine...I am busy reading any books illustrated by Laura Huliska-Beith (she will be at Lewis and Clark on May 8 to visit with all kindergarten, first, and second grade students), I am currently trying to read all of the 2009-2010 KC3 Nominees ( I just finished, Remembering Mrs. Rossi and LOVED it-what a powerful book about families), and I am trying to read tons of the new books that have just arrived in our library. What great fun!
Mrs. Haynes said that I absolutely could not just see the movie, The Tale of Despereaux, but I had to read the book. Boy, was she right. I loved the writing style of this book. Especially when the author would talk directly to me as a reader. This is a must read for all readers!
It is my hope that you to are experiencing the joy that good books can bring to your life.
