I have been doing lots of reading, because it's been a while since I posted. I've been participating in The Shelf Challenge set up by Matthew Winner. Click here to read more about the challenge. I've read a lot of "A" books from my Everybody section. I've found some gems, some books that needed to be removed, and others that I've got to figure out how to get them into kids hands!
One of my favorites from the past few weeks was The Water Castle by Megan Frazer Blakemore. A fellow Nerdy Book Club member Susan Dee (@literacydocent) recommend this book to me. Click here for a summary from Goodreads. This book was a very interesting read. I loved it! The characters were easy to relate too and feel all of their emotions. I highly recommend this book!
I also read Timmy Failure by Stephan Pastis. I was so thrilled to win this one from Susan Dee (@literacydocent). I had seen it at Target when I was shopping, but I didn't have time to stop and read a bit. Then after I saw the book trailer, I knew that I had to get this one for my library! Click here for a summary from Goodreads. I think that my students are really going to enjoy this book and have quite a few laughs over Timmy and his antics.

As I was beginning to tweet about starting Hattie Ever After, I was thrilled and honored that Kirby Larson responded to my tweet. And to added to my excitement she started to follow me on Twitter. I was really glad nobody was around to see my happy dance!!
