Great Summer Reads

Rebeckah's Pick: The Center of Everything by Laura Moriarty. I don't even know how this ended up in my book bag last week. It was so good that I stayed up until 3:00 am this morning finishing it. It was so good that I want to blog about it instead of doing my paperwork which is due in less than 24 hours. This book was thought provoking. Kaishon's pick: Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key by Jack Cantos. Kaishon liked this book because the little boy has ADHD and he has a hard time in school (kind of like Kaish : () There is good resolution in the book though as Joey gets help for his problems and eventually returns to school. We can't wait to read the rest of the series.Sabria's pick: Miss Bindergarten Celebrates the Last Day of Kindergarten by Joseph Slate. Sabria likes this book because "there are lots of rhymes and Miss Bindergarten is a Dog." Who wouldn't love a dog for a teacher, right?

Gary's pick: I just sent him a text at work to see if he had a favorite book and he wrote back and said this, "Aren't you supposed to be working? I haven't read a book in a long time. I don't want to give a pick." So there you have it : ).

What great books have you read lately?

Shame on me, I'm in the same boat as Gary...so shame on both of us! lol.

I do love History and biograpies. Not big on fiction.

I wish I had a dog for a teacher!
