This Caldecott award winning novel was absolutely amazing! I really loved all of the artwork that is used to tell the story along with the pictures. Hugo is a young boy living in the clocks at a train station in Paris. Hugo meets an old man who runs a toy shop that he steals parts from to rebuild an invention of his father‘s but it turns out the man is not who Hugo thinks he is.

CPettersen #ucflae3414f19 I think this book would be best utilized in the classroom as an RA just because of how many pictures are in the book and how shockingly easy the book is of a read. I would use ESOL strategy 36 to help foster good understanding , and also UDL 3.1 would be a good way to increase comprehension with regards to the historical aspect of the book as students may not know about the historical events in the book. 3w

This fun mid-grade book was exactly what I needed to read right now. It‘s sort of a mix between Harry Potter and Narnia and even a little Something Wicked This Way Comes. My 12-year-old daughter is already reading it too and really liking it!

I made it through this for book club tomorrow but woke up today with the flu. So I read it for nothing! Littens, I‘m throwing myself a 50th bday party on Saturday. It‘s Tues night and I‘m shaking with chills and so achy. Keep a good thought!

LeeRHarry Feel better really soon! 🤞🏻 2mo

Halfway through this month‘s book club pick and struggling. So boring! Hope it gets better. At least it‘s short!

LeeRHarry I actually enjoyed this one - it was nice and sciency 😏 and short as you say 😊 2mo
ReadingDownUnder @LeeRHarry I‘m not really into science. For non-fiction I prefer political history or memoir/biography. Yawn!!! 2mo
CarolynM I haven't read this but I did see a really good TV dramatisation of the story. It was called Longitude too. Maybe you could watch that instead of reading? 2mo
ReadingDownUnder @CarolynM HA! I found a 30 min YouTube thing about it but even that was too boring. Nearly finished! 2mo

Autumn arrived... So that means, it's getting darker.
I'm not too good with this time of the year, so let's remember some lovely summertime at the pool!

1. 👆
2. Reading! While visiting my parents and also babysitting the dog for a night while they go babysit their grandkids/my niblings, lol. I'll probably use the time to dig through the books I have stored in their basement.
3. Cherry Garcia!
4. If you sit me at a piano or hand me a guitar and let me stare at the sheet music for about an hour, you may eventually discern a tune you vaguely recognize.
