Today, one of my students surprised me with two Rainbow Rowell books! With my name!! By far one of the coolest gifts I‘ve ever received. One of the student‘s relatives is good friends with the author! What a small world.

Happy New Year! Starting the reading year off with a graphic novel and my first #NYWD pick.

A high school senior, oblivious to girls, gets help from his pumpkin patch BFF in a last ditch effort to talk to the girl he likes from afar.

The story may be a little predictable, but it serves as comfort food - kind of like the patch foods sampled throughout the book. Faith Erin Hicks did a great job illustrating.

A Turkey for Thanksgiving | Eve Bunting, Diane De Groat
post image

When Mrs. Moose expresses a desire to have a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner in this humorous seasonal picture-book, Mr. Moose sets out to fulfill her wish, but finds to his surprise that Turkey is not so enthusiastic. Young readers and listeners will immediately understand Turkey's motivation here, and will enjoy being in on the joke. Very sensitive audiences might find the story somewhat distressing, so adults should be aware of that.

This year‘s Jólabókaflóð book exchange! My husband: Shoeless Joe (Field of Dreams), me: The City of Mists, my kids: Frog and Toad set and Tree. We‘ve celebrated this tradition since visiting Iceland in 2017 and I look forward to it every year. Time to curl up with our books. Merry Christmas Eve! Happy reading to all of you!

AvidReader25 @melissajayne that‘s awesome! I read this one almost 10 years ago when we were in Iowa and loved it. I hope my husband will too! 3w

3 ⭐ A child and their parent/grandparent have an adventurous day in fall. They walk through the trees, talk about the animals, and finally pick pumpkins. This was a typical book. Not bad byt nothing special.
