26 Fairmount Avenue
26 Fairmount Avenue | Tomie DePaola
2 posts | 9 read | 1 to read
A Newbery Honor Book Tomie's family starts building their new house at 26 Fairmount Avenue in 1938, just as a hurricane hits town, starting off a busy, crazy year. Tomie has many adventures all his own, including eating chocolate with his Nana Upstairs, only to find out--the hard way--that they have eaten chocolate laxative. He tries to skip kindergarten when he finds out he won't learn to read until first grade. "I'll be back next year," he says. When Tomie goes to see Snow White, he creates another sensation. Tomie dePaola's childhood memories are hilarious, and his charming illustrations are sure to please. "A thoroughly entertaining and charming story."School Library Journal "DePaola successfully evokes the voice of a precocious, inquisitive five-year-old everyone would want to befriend. Charming black-and-white illustrations animate the scenes and add a period flare, including a photo album-like assemblage of the characters' portraits at the book's start."Publishers weekly From the Trade Paperback edition.

DrSpalding This is a sweet biography about the author. He is one of my favorites and sadly passed away last fall. His books will always have a place in my classroom library and I hope in yours. Partner reading could work well and you are universal design principles work nicely. 2y

Belated June round-up, Part 2! One more MG novel-in-verse and the entire 26 Fairmount Avenue series written & illustrated by Tomie DePaola. They were quick, enjoyable reads and probably straddling the line between early chapter book and middle grade — most of them stated for ages 7-10 — or, you know, 32 🤷‍♀️📚❤️
