The Past Week:
Nightbird by Alice Hoffman - I picked up this ARC at ALA Midwinter. This is a middle grade book with a taste of fantasy and mystery. There's someone leaving messages all around town about owls, a monster in the woods, And a spell cast by a witch. All of this is combined deliciously in a story with friendship and family. I'll be happy to share it students.
Monster Goose Nursery Rhymes - I reviewed this one on the blog
Uptown by Bryan Collier - This is a fun and jazzy look at a young boy's community. It bounces and would be a great mentor text for sense of place.
Hold Me Down by Calvin Slater - I reviewed this one at Rich in Color
Uptown was my favorite of the week.
The Coming Week:
Have a wonderful week of reading!
