Happy Friday Everyone

Last weeks quote :

“Hewitt, standing in all his splendor and glory, seemed tall compared to his former self. Now his parents understood. Hewitt did indeed know how to live among the gigantic things. And because he was small, Hewitt was just as he should be. For his parents realized that bug or small, either is best of all!”

was from Hewitt Anderson’s Great Big Life by Jerdine Nolen and Illustrated by kadir Nelson. It is a mix of Thumbelina and Jack and The Bean Stock. It is a great  read that is a tad bit too long to read aloud to a group, but it is a ideal one-on-one read. Please check it out at your nearest library.

Here is the next quote:

“What doesn’t Tanya want to do?

Sometimes she doesn’t want to go shopping.

Or she doesn’t want to go home.

Or she doesn’t want to wear her warm winter boots

because her sandals are much prettier”

Can you guess which picture book this comes from?

Hello all

I have read The Mysterious Benedict Society series by Trenton Lee Stewart and I loved it! It is refreshing to read a book  featuring dynamic children protagonists which  has no magical aspects  in it. In The Mysterious Benedict Society  the children are recruited by adults to save the world based on their unusual abilities. If  you have read this series and loved it and are looking for something similar than I have just the thing! The Ability by M.M. Vaughn also feature extraordinary children who at the age of twelve have the heighten ability to do and learn remarkable things with their minds.  These children with “the ability” are recruited to save various facility members from an old institution,who are being attacked through their minds. Though The Ability is darker in tone than The Mysterious Benedict Society,  they  share in common a mystery  and the need for adults to be saved. Interested? Please check it out at your nearest library. Enjoy!
