This book has been on my TBR pile for a while. Looking forward to reading the sequel to Raymie Nightingale by Kate DiCamillo. ❤️📚
In honor on #nationalreadabookday I am currently reading Blended! ❤️📚
Good night! #ucflae3414su19
I finished the book last Saturday. I was surprised that BOY was an ANGEL! Did any of you see that coming? He was so loyal to Secunda until the very end. The photo is in St. Peter‘s Cathedral and the tomb is down below. #UCFBC19
@AndreaG I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Thanks for the push to finally read it. Loving nature and being in a kayak myself, I loved that Kya took the circumstances she was dealt as the Marsh Girl, and made the most of them. She was so strong in the face of immense adversity and inevitably became a published author. I do wish we knew more of the love story that was her and Tate but knowing they lived a good life together was enough. ❤️📚
In chapters 1-10 I was immediately enamored with Boy. He‘s pure of heart! He LOVES animals which many of us in this book club do and obviously cherished the idea of reading and books! I made T-W connections with the Hunchback of Notre Dame especially in light of the recent fires and with several other stories where children have disabilities and just want to be accepted. In latter chapters I was happy to see the pilgrim caring for him.
Let‘s begin Litsy posts on this book related to our TQP using the hashtag #TQPbookclub2019 ❤️📚
This is my book mark. All previous posts to this one are considered on time!
Thank you Haley for reading and sharing this touching story. I was in Boston a couple of years after the bombing. I went to the finish line. It was surreal. This Schneider Family award winning biography was so touching! As you can see, my 🐕 Finn, at first wasn‘t interested but then, he liked it enough to nibble the corner. Dogs make lives better! Rescue makes Jessica‘s life better every day! #LAE3414sp19
Since May, I have listened to 21 novels! This piece of HF has been a favorite along with Midnight Blue! While it was slow to start, this book, caused me to look up famous works of art and even more information about German occupation during WWII. Having recently visited Paris, one of the settings in the novel and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, my appreciation for the talents of artists renewed. If you enjoy wartime novels and art, read it!❤️📚
One more quick blurb; these are the four audio book novels I have listened to during December and January! I find that listening to books in the car helps me keep up with my reading. I usually have an in print and audiobook going at the same time. These four titles of which three are RF and one is HF are great books. I enjoy mysteries and crime novels. #lovebooks #chargeon 💜📚
Quick post on this wonderful B about John Newbery. With the latest book for 2018 having been announced on Monday, knowing where this award came from and the influence this particular gentlemen had on children‘s literature, is powerful. I will bring this book back to class in two weeks. Excellent posts so far; keep using your rubric! 💜📚 http://www.ilovelibraries.org/booklovers/youth-media-awards Check out this link for more award info!
To be honest, I had thoughts of abandoning this book. Eleanor was such an odd character however, she became endearing as the book went on. @Rcoco shared that it was being turned into a movie. I ended up truly enjoying this title and look forward to seeing it on the big screen.

Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman's lovely bear series of books are in the Chick-Fil-A kid's meal! They are great little additions to your classroom library! Bonus… You get to eat yummy Chick-fil-A.😋
While this is not The Fault in Our Stars, this is another coming of age novel that enlightens the reader to love, loss, teen angst and the perils of living with OCD. After my nephew encouraged me years ago to read Green's YA novels, specifically Looking for Alaska, I have continued to read all of his work. They are all worthy of reading and this is no exception. #ucflae3414f17
This New York Times Best Seller is an eye opening HF account of the infamous Georgia Tann; the woman known to have stolen poor children from shanty boats off the Mississippi River to wealthy families or possibly worse! Chronicling a particular families journey, this caused me to research the truth behind this fictional account. https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/537866/before-we-were-yours-by-lisa-win... #ucflae3414f17
I am fascinated by WWII books and this was excellent. It told the story of women sent to Ravensbruck, the only all women concentration camp of the war. Heartwrenching! https://nypost.com/2016/05/08/the-women-tortured-by-nazi-doctors-and-the-america... This link takes you to a story of the real women and the heiress who saved them! #ucflae3414f17
A wonderful book with a movie that brings the characters to life. A true classic! #ucflae3414f17
Here's my #bookhaul @MadisonCarter & @Aimeejett from the #Scholastic warehouse sale! $66 for 24 books. I saw FIVE former students; four of which were working for books and happily teaching at Cheney, Crystal Lakes and Lake Mary Elementary! Most of these will be giveaways to my spring LAE class. #ucflae3414f17
This F, E.B. White Read Aloud honor book would be an excellent addition to any elementary classroom library. The theme of this book is about being true to yourself. The red crayon label on this blue crayon confused everyone including his family and the teacher. In the end, being true to himself is what helped everyone accept him. This book would be best RA, using the HC teacher's guide to make use of effective B, D and A reading strategies.
Last but not least, now that the fall semester has begun, I am back to reading quality children's literature. Having read Wolf Hollow by Wolk, shortly after it won the Newbery Honor in January, I was intrigued to read another book of hers. This story revolves around an orphaned girl named Crow in search of finding where she came from. So far so good. ❤️📚
