“Everything about him was paying attention to the teacher-everything except his eyes and his mind.“

I would use this book in my classroom to show my students the diverse cultures and hopefully give them a better understanding of the diversity among cultures so that they know of them.

A Long Walk to Water: Based on a True Story written by Linda Sue Park. Chapter 1 p.1-7. Introduced Salva, who lives in southern Sudan, and talks about how he goes to school rather than working at home. When he is at school one day, a war starts because the people in the south practice a different religion and didn't want to be forced to practice Islam. This could be related to diverse children in today's world because of discrimination.

This is a good introduction to pollinator conservation and gardening. 🦋

I'm loving catching up with Alice Oswald's backlist (before I'll let myself read her new one)! I love how she sees things. I love how she expresses what she sees. I'd be as ill-tempered as all hell that she hits the notes I find such hard work to get close to, but her poetry is just so damned good I can only be delighted by it.

Really enjoyed this book, but blimey, how desolate! I had to stop reading it and pick up something else to counteract it, because this book sees us in a very unhappy, drought ridden, war torn world. (FYI, the other book is Armistead Maupins Tales of the City 1 - very good 😉). This is the second in a quartet. I‘ll be reading the next two (really need to read the 1st - on my shelf, but it‘s about the death of Bees - need to prepare myself!)
