This is going to be a short post because even though I read a lot not many book really excited me. I guess I've had half of my brain focusing on school stuff.
The one book that did stand out for me was Sit In: How Four Friends Stood Up by Sitting Down by Andrea Davis Pinkney. This book was celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Woolworth's lunch counter sit-in. This would be a great book to have in any classroom library. I'm adding a copy to my order this year for my library. I truly loved the illustrations by Brian Pinkney.
I guess this is a post of what I'm looking forward to reading this week. The one book I cannot wait to get my hands on The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee by Tom Angleberger! I am a HUGE fan on Tom Angleberger's books. I love the Origami Yoga books and have high hopes for Fortune Wookiee! I was lucky enough to get a digital doodle from him for my Fortune Wookiee books! Now I just need the book!!
On a side note, I'm thinking about doing some book clubs this school year. I've never done one at all. I would love some suggestions on how to start it, and how to run it. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks in advance!!
