Tuesdays with Morrie | Mitch Albom
Mehso-so

I‘ve been interested in this book since my grandfather mentioned it when I was a lot younger. Now that I‘ve finally read it, I did enjoy it and I know it will always make me think of him. Not something that I would have read otherwise, but still very sweet

Pickpick

Pura Belpré Award

Description: This story follows Little Lobo and his side kick Bernabé as they work for their delivery business. They get an urgent message from their favorite wrestler, El Toro. The wrestlers are very hungry as they train for a big show, and Lobo knows all the best food trucks in town! Little Lobo, Bernabé, and their rooster friend Kooky Dooky go on an adventure to help the wrestlers satisfy their hunger!

clairebourq_2023 Why I like: This is a great mix of English, Spanish, and Spanglish to introduce to our children in the classroom. We are able to look at different culture and their food through this fun adventure of illustration.

In two words: Ok, boomer.😅
This is written from a place of immense privilege and 'why are you here?' becomes a very dark question when you haven't won the place-of-birth lottery.
The sarcasm about having enough money for retirement made me especially angry. There is a fine line between how much do you really need and being unable to afford a roof over your head.
Also all sorts of epiphanies seem to happen on expensive holidays abroad.🤔

A lovely sweet reflection on life and how to embrace every day.

“Life is made up of moments, small pieces of glittering mica in a long stretch of gray cement. It would be wonderful if they came to us and summoned, but particularly in lives as busy as the ones most of us lead now, that won‘t happen. We have to teach ourselves how to make a room for them, to love them, and to live, really live.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
What would you tell those around you if you only had months to live?
This sobering end-of-life account reminds of how we can live a satisfying life.
This book covers a heavy topic in such a light hearted way you'll want to love those you care about in a much deeper way.
