I, Fly, written by Bridget Heos and illustrated by Jennifer Plecas, is a (NF) book about flies! As someone who HATES flies and bugs in general, I was hesitant to read it. However, reading about cool facts about flies in a cool way, it may have changed my mind little bit.

WoodsKatie I hope, paired with a science lesson, it may interest students as well! This would be great in a class of 3rd to 6th graders. It would be a great RA and then used in a lesson. The book also satisfies UDL guidelines 6.1 and 1.3 as well as ESOL strategies 1 and 8. A lesson I found had lesson plans as well as interviews and additional information about the book. https://www.teachingbooks.net/tb.cgi?a=1&tid=44391 #LAE3414sp19 10mo

The hate that people load onto Amazon is getting old. I understand why one would avoid using them, but their prices are so much better. There shouldn‘t be shamming of where people buy their books, but an embrace of people reading. It shouldn‘t matter where one buys ones book or if they get them from the library, it should matter more if they are reading at all

melissajayne I understand the concerns that people have about Amazon and other bookstores like ChapterIndigo or B&N or Waterstones, but when your only choice is one of those options to purchase books from, you have to go with those you options. I would like to have a store like Munro‘s in Victoria, BC but I don‘t. (edited) 10mo
melissajayne The most important thing is that people are reading. I don‘t care about the format either 10mo
melissajayne People are just too damn sensitive as a person‘s reading behaviours. 10mo

ShyBookOwl I agree. The world is changing and that means the way we access books is changing too. Key here, we're still reading! So much, in fact, that we need accessible, affordable options. I'm buying books. All the time. Usually from Amazon. 10mo
Birdsong28 In my town we have a small Waterstones or the Supermarket for new releases, there is a bargain book store but it takes awhile for them to get new releases, so if I can't find it in the 2 main options mentioned I have to go to Amazon. I also have a kindle so I have to get my ebooks from Amazon and I love using Audible which is an Amazon company for my audiobooks. I guess some people don't like using big corporations. But I agree with your sentiment 10mo
rretzler Agreed. 10mo
melissajayne @Birdsong28 and most people who say these things usually live in more urban environments that have such things. If you live in a suburb or smaller community your options are limited. I would to have an independent book store in my suburban town, but I don‘t. 10mo

Couldn‘t resist reposting this that I found on FB. It neglects to mention what reading does for your vocabulary. My current nonfiction read is sending me on regular treks to the dictionary.

@MaleficentBookDragon congrats on your milestone and thanks for doing a giveaway!

When I was little, my cousins, sister, and I played a game we called “stick pile”. It was a simple game of make believe, in which we hung out by my parents stacked wood and kindling and pretended we had to live there, because we were orphans. Lol, imagination is the best, this memory makes me miss being a kid!

MaleficentBookDragon That is so funny! I used to dress up in long skirts and pretend I lived in an orphanage run by a mean nun. I was so weird. Thanks for entering! 2y
Wife @MaleficentBookDragon I played “orphanage” too! Only l was in charge and all the orphans were my dolls. Their beds were cardboard boxes all in a row. No mean nuns in my orphanage!😄👶🏻👶🏻👶🏻👶🏻👶🏻👶🏻👶🏻 2y
