If you live in New England you just finished up a fall weekend that was a page right out of mid-summer! My family enjoyed a gorgeous road trip to the White Mountains of New Hampshire yesterday, and soaked up the beauty of autumn's vibrancy!
Books I've Recently Read:
The Copernicus Legacy: The Forbidden Stone by Tony Abbott
Katherine Tegen Books, 2014
Recommended for grades 5-7
A mystery surrounding the work and theories of Copernicus, and one highly coveted item, takes a group of kids on a fast paced adventure around the world. I enjoyed it, but wasn't riveted to it. I do think it will appeal to many readers though, and would certainly add it to my classroom library!
The Right Word: Roget and His Thesaurus by Jen Bryant, illustrated by Melissa Sweet
Eerdmans Books, 2014
Recommended for grades 2+
For my review on this AWESOME book, visit last week's Nonfiction Picture Book post.
Flashlight by Lizi Boyd
Chronicle Books, 2014
Recommended for everyone!
Are the best kinds of friends the ones that bring you books? You know my answer to that! ;) This was a gift to me from a very special bookish/writerly friend of mine. Will I give it to my son, bring it to my classroom? Both!
This beautiful, sweet and funny little book is all about one boy's nighttime walk. This wordless book urges readers to explore alone with the boy, as his flashlight beam illuminates sections of each page.
But the tables turn when the animals recover the dropped flashlight!
Great inspiration for art and writing projects for various ages!

I'm getting there...I need to finish this!
