It is Monday and again I am joining in the meme over at Mentor Texts.
Hop on over and join in over at the Mentor Text Blog. Just click on the picture
This past week I read Kira Kira by Cynthia Kadohata, 2005 Newbery Award Winner. It was a great insight into what it might be like for an immigrant family in a new country. It was about family, hardship, courage and loss.
I also read Sidekicks by Dan Santat - graphic novel. This was a lot of fun and I enjoyed it, I know it will be popular in my class. I thought it incorporated some great values around loyalty, forgiveness and friendship.
This coming week it is going to be A Wrinkle in Time and I would like to read one of the Goddess Girls to sample them - probably Artemis the Loyal.
