Good morning. I hope you had a nice week. Mine was pretty good. I started a literature circle with a group in M's 2nd grade class. We're reading Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo. The kids seem to like it so far.
Reviews and Blog Posts
Last week, I wrote two reviews:
Palmetto Moon by Kim Boykin
A Dangerous Fiction by Barbara Rogan
Both were quite good so be sure to check out my reviews!
I read Palmetto Moon last week, and then started reading Divided: The Perils of Our Growing Inequality edited by David Cay Johnston. I'm reading this one in preparation for Blog Action Day, which is this Thursday, October 16th. On that day, bloggers from over 100 countries around the world will all be blogging about the same topic: inequality. I'll be reviewing Divided, and sharing my thoughts on inequality. If you feel strongly about inequality of any kind, consider signing up to blog with us!
Last weekend, we watched the movie How to Train Your Dragon. C then discovered that there is a series of books related to the movie, so we bought the first one, How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell, and we've requested the next couple from the library. When we were at the book store, M bought Thea Stilton Special Edition: The Secret of the Snow: A Geronimo Stilton Adventure by Thea Stilton, which she is enjoying.
