Listened to this audiobook yesterday - it‘s only 4 hours - and it was so funny! I mean with a hero by the name of Hiccup, how could it not be. As part of his initiation to his Viking tribe, he has to capture and train a dragon. Loved his method. I laughed out loud at the antics of the Vikings and dragons. Scottish narrator was great! #101 #BookSpinBingo #21 #BFC21 #3 #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #28 #AwesomeAugust #ROYALREADATHON Mushu #HSREADATHON

Book #28: Seven weeks later and I can‘t believe I‘m done with this series. It took me a while to get through this last one because I didn‘t feel as much of a sense of urgency to finish it. Not sure if it‘s because I didn‘t want it to end or it felt like this book was dragging things out a bit. I just have mixed emotions about this final book. Still not over the Thirteen.

Cheshirecat913 Yes, the thirteen got to me too. And Asterin's back story! 😭 5mo
ShelbyA7 @Cheshirecat913 I cried about them every time they were mentioned after their moment 🥲 5mo
JELEIGH I finished last week and now idk what to do w my life bc I didn‘t want the series to end 😭 5mo

I have to say, I really like where I think the series could be headed. Already on a wait list for ‘Rafael‘ & 🤞🏻🙏🏻 for minimal Overdrive/Kobo “issues” this time.

TheSpineView Awesome! 👍📖 7mo

Book #28:
I found this book to have little information and be slightly confusing in its presentation. I did like that they cited research, but it would not have taken too much effort to address the systemic inequities present in the diagnosis gatekeeping for non-White-cismale folks. It felt like maybe it was a book about autism... written for neurotypical folks? Idk. Not for me. I‘m giving it a so-so bc it still gives research & awareness🎈

Popsugar Challenge #28

This was a weird book. I picked it out because I really liked the cover, but then the story didn't match it at all. It was a sprawling story that followed the lives of several people all touched by Bertha Truitt, except her daughter, the person I was really interested in knowing more about.

Viva Frida | Yuyi Morales

This biographical Caldecott winner tells the story of one of the most famous artists in the world, Frida Kahlo! This biography age appropriately tells her story and the tragedy that inspired her to paint. Students could utilize this book by using a read aloud for the classroom, especially during an important time such as Hispanic Heritage Month. #ucflae3414sp21

21 #28 I think I am getting close to being caught up on this series and that makes me sad. It is perfect for lighthearted fun reading and the audio books are great! This might have been my favorite so far!

Malala's Magic Pencil | Malala Yousafzai
post image

Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafazai tells a story inspired by her own childhood. This nonfiction picture book tells the story of Malala living in Pakistan making a wish for a magic pencil. As she ages, her wishes come more important. She wishes to fix the world‘s problems and realizes she can do that by working hard everyday. This book would be great for an author study because it‘s a story based from her own experiences! #ucflae3414sp21
