I have not been doing a lot of reading this week because I have been so sick! I knew that I was really sick when I couldn't even focus enough to read. I already had two chapter books started and I started a third while I was at the doctors. I started feeling better this weekend, so I had to finish one!
The book that I started at the doctor's office was The Zoo at the Edge of the World by Eric Kahn Gale. Click here for a summary on Goodreads. This was an interesting read. It is very hard to write a review, because I'm not sure how I feel about this book. The beginning of the book really intrigued me and made me keep reading. I think it is the ending that makes me don't sure how I feel about this book. I hope others read it so I can hear their opinions about this book. I got this book through Jr. Library Guild and was captivated by the cover of it. There are great illustrations throughout.
Last week I forgot to mention a great early chapter book that I read. I was so excited to get Rescue on the Oregon Trail by Kate Messner. This is the first book in the Ranger in Time series. Click here for a summary on Goodreads. I can't say enough good things about this book! I LOVED it so much! There was just enough drama to keep it interesting without being too intense for the younger readers. I can't wait to see where/when Ranger goes next. I might just have to buy it for my library because I want to share it with the kids!!
I'm on the road to recovery health wise so I'm hoping to finish the two other chapter books I have going and a few nonfiction books I've picked up at the library. What are you reading?
