Once again I had a crazy week! This week has felt like two weeks in one! On Monday we had snow, so we had a two hour late arrival. but I couldn't enjoy it. Over the weekend my parents had trouble with both of their cars. My dad had an MRI scheduled at 7:45am, but I didn't feel comfortable letting them drive in the snow. So I ended up getting up and driving them to the MRI facility. The only good thing about this was I had about a solid hour of reading time!
I finished You Can Fly by Carole Boston Weatherford. Click here for a summary on Goodreads. I just love a book written in verse and this one was great! I learned that there is so much I didn't know about the Tuskeegee Airmen. The verse form allow for a lot of information to be shared without becoming overwhelming. I really appreciated the timeline and all the resources that the author shared at the end of the book. This is one that I can't wait to share with my students. I hope that they will enjoy it as much as I did.
The only other book I read this week was This Book Is Out Of Control! by Richard Byrne. Click here for a summary on Goodreads. In this book we meet up with Bella, her dog, and Ben who has a remote controlled toy. As with the other two books things don't go according to plan. There is a lot of reader participation in this book too. I know that this will become a favorite of my students as the other two books have.
I have started Jasper and The Riddle of Riley's Mine by Caroline Starr Rose. Click here for a summary on Goodreads. This book will be published tomorrow February 7, 2017. I'm only on page 82 and I am LOVING the book already. Can't wait until I have time to read some more of it!
