I haven’t done an IMWAYR post in ages. I’ve missed doing them, so I’m going to try and get back in the saddle.
The Wild Robot
By: Peter Brown
The Wild Robot is Hatchet 2.0! Kids are going to love Peter’s first middle grade novel. The Wild Robot is a perfect read aloud. 12 year-old Colby would have read this book to shreds.
The Happiest Book Ever
By: Bob Shea
Bob Shea read us The Happiest Book Ever last week during his author visit. My 9 year old son was cracking up the entire time. Bob Shea just gets kids.
Last week Mr. Schu premiered the book trailer for Melanie Conklin’s Counting Thyme. I love Counting Thyme. Hopefully, the trailer encourages a bunch of kids to pick up the book and give it a read.
If you haven’t listened to The Book Love Podcast you are really missing out. Penny Kittle has created what I feel is the best education podcast in the universe.
