High in the melting glaciers of South America's Andes Mountains, the most amazing bodies found in the ice are not accident victims, but deliberate burials of centuries-old Ince children, sacrificed to appease their gods.

This book would be very cool to put in an older elementary classroom. The images and the captions are very intriguing and would make anyone interested in reading.

Around the world, the glaciers are melting fast. The glaciers have been revealing bodies that have lived thousands of years in the past. The author does a wonderful job visually showing how glaciers are truly mystical. The book is set up like a scrapbook, allowing people to be lured in by the interesting, yet respectful images.

Princess Academy | Shannon Hale

#UCFLAE3414F19

(author: Shannon Hale)

This MF follows a young mountain girl, Miri, who must attend a makeshift academy to prepare herself to become a suitable princess candidate, pitting herself against the other competitive, eligible girls and facing her own conflicting feelings about being chosen. It would work as an IR or LC, with detailed world-building and plenty of characterization to focus on.

EL Strategy 7: Show students how to use graphic organizers like semantic mapping and imaging (to optimize comprehension of text).

UDL Principle 9.3: Develop self-assessment and reflection (for independent reading).

I enjoyed this book but it was kind of shaking reading about and seeing the dead bodies up on top of these mountains. Nevertheless the book was very interesting.

I am not easily spooked by books, but this one really sent a shiver down my spine. I haven‘t been so creeped out since I read The Turn of the Screw as a teenager. A slowly developing sense of menace suffuses the entire story & that the writer manages to imbue a rucksack with malevolence is particularly impressive. A concise, powerfully evocative read that left me feeling as chilly as the Himalayas in which it is set.

This HF book follows a young girl as she relives her best childhood memories while living in the mountains. In 1983 it won the title of Caldecott Honor Book. This story would do best as storytelling. A UDL that would work good here would be 2.1, “Clarify vocabulary and symbols,” because this book has some vocabulary words that even I had to look up. #UCFLAE3414F19

JennaMichelleCohn Another UDL that would work well here is 3.2, “Highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships.” A good ESOL strategy would be 11, “Place language in a meaningful context,” because the tougher vocabulary really relates to the setting. 3w
