I have been reading and listening. Just finished listening to the Newbery Award, When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead.
I. Loved. It. Four mysterious letters. Time travel. Friends.Lost and Found. A mystery. I listened to this tale and wondered about whether my fifth graders would pick it up. Yep, I think they will. I can see it on reader award lists. Stead’s images are so clear that they stick with he reader/listener long after the book is over.
The (mostly) True Adventures of Homer P. Figg by Rodman Philbrick is what’s playing in the car now. Okay, it’s a book that I may not have picked up to listen to or to read. But I want to read the Newbery’s so…
It’s fun, I’m laughing and thoroughly entertained. It is definitely a book that someone could have lots of fun reading aloud with the variety of character voices.
What are you reading or listening to? Happy Reading.
