Mehso-so

Unpopular opinion ahead! This book really didn‘t work for me. This is likely coming from my own privilege but I don‘t want my 10 year old reading a book where a tween gets a gun and plots to kill someone who attacked them. The main story was okay, if a bit unbelievable, but there were so many peripheral stories and characters, I couldn‘t keep track of it all. #booked2019 and #readharderchallenge diverse middle grade/diversity award winner.

rretzler I can totally understand that. It‘s hard to pick important books for kids that send the right message in the right way. 2mo

Took my kids to the local library today. The library have a great summer campaign for kids! Sommerles is a reading campaign for the 1st to 7th grade. The campaign is designed as a game where the kids move up levels according to how many pages they read. At sommerles.no you can register the books you read, collect points, get cool prizes and reading tips, read the exciting summer story, solve tasks and follow what your friends are reading! #library

I will definitely be recommending this to students! Something that struggling readers would LOVE — this book is about a kid who lives in the projects in New York. He is struggling with his brother‘s murder, his neighborhood and his family. Feeling alone, he turns to art with LEGOS and makes an amazing friend along the way. I can‘t wait to get a few more copies for my students! “The decisions you make can become your life. Your choices are you.”

🎶 I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sat quietly, agreed politely
I guess that I forgot I had a choice🎶

Will Lolly be a constructive force, or will he join the “crew” for protection?

MaureenMc I recently listened to this audio, too. Great story, and I really liked the narrator. 4mo
Louise How was it? 4mo
Chelleo @Louise I put it down. It was slow moving and I just couldn‘t get into it. I‘ll revisit it soon. 4mo
Louise Thanks. 👍 4mo

Wallace lives in the PJs (the projects) and carries a big rock in his chest churning with grief, anxiety, and fear. But his Lego towers and his love of architecture help give him some flow...

David Barclay Moore's The Stars Beneath Our Feet is a gorgeous, middle-grade read. Protagonist Lolly, who lives in Harlem with his mom and her girlfriend Yvonne, is grieving after the shooting death of his brother, Jermaine. Lolly finds strength in a few places: his friend Vega is his constant companion, and his Lego creations provide an outlet for his imagination. (continued in comments)

UnabridgedPod Through Lolly's journey, he faces down bullies; comes to know Big Rose, an outcast who joins the after-school program; and endeavors to build a huge new realm with Legos Yvonne brings him from the toy store where she works. This is one of those quiet, beautiful books that it's hard to summarize because it's the small details that make it so strong and that impact the reader so much. I highly recommend Moore's book! 5mo

I have had this notebook for a while, but I decided to break it out to write my meditation goals in. I‘m not sure what will motivate me to finally use my Taylor Swift notebook, lol 🤷🏽‍♀️ Maybe when I am ready to write about the break up. Probably just the final drafts of poems though, lol. My mom found some of my poems from like 12 years ago. I was much more angsty - is that a word? Lol, than I am now. I‘m kinda in denial. Meditation helps ✌🏽❤️
