I didn't get to read a lot this week because it was Book Fair. I was always reading the same books over and over, but I did came across I gem or two. But I did manage to slip in a few books in the evening to read.
The one that I really loved from the Book Fair was Superworm by Julia Donaldson. Click here for a summary on Goodreads. This book was so much fun to read with the kids. They really got into cheering for Superworm! It was one that many asked me to read again as soon as I finished. It was a rhyming story, but not one that hit you over the head with the rhymes. The illustrations by Axel Scheffler just add to the greatness of the book. If you haven't seen this one, it is a must read!
This weekend I raided my public library's new book shelf and came across 123 versus ABC by Mike Boldt. Click here for a summary on Goodreads. This was a hoot to read! I can see it being used to teach point of view in the classroom. It is one that I'm going to be ordering soon for my library. If you think you are getting a simple alphabet/counting book, you are in for a pleasent surprise.
I'm in the process of reading Ungifted by Gordon Korman. It is a Black-Eyed Susan nominated book in Maryland. I wasn't sure about it when I first started reading it, but the story has grown on me and I'm interested in seeing how it ends.
I will also be reading quite a bit more in the next few week because I'm participating the the Shelf Challenge. The Shelf Challenge is hosted by Matthew Winner. You can read his post about the challenge here. This year I am reading my "W" books in the Everybody section. If you go back to April 2013, you can read all about my challenge last year. I was reading the "A" books. I came across a few really great books, but some that I couldn't believe were still on my shelves. Stay tuned for some updates.
