Well it's been a little over a week since the last day of school and it's getting about that time to start working on my to do list. I have already finished reading The Book Whisper. It was a great book and got me really inspired to devour as many children book titles as I can. This way I can make recommendations to my students. I have been feverishly trying to read this year's Sunshine State Readers and next year's as well. Also, I have been trying to acquire audio versions of many titles for my struggling readers.
I would love some recommendations for books to read that the kids might be into. I just finished reading:
1. Al Capone Shines My Shoes (very good)
2. Cicada Summer (very good)
3. Obi, Gerbil on the Loose (something about a talking gerbil didn't do it for me)
4. Eleven (a little on slow side)
I also made and added my blog button, although I'm not completely happy with it. I'm just waiting to fix it, but right now not really feeling it. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer!
