Happy Newbery day! I am flush with excitement over who will come out as winners at the ALA Youth Media Awards today!
Speaking of Newbery, last week was an awesome week for my students because we were able to Skype with 3-time Newbery honor author Jennifer Holm, and then the next day we Skyped with debut author Christopher Healy, who wrote the hilarious The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom. Check out my post about it here.
Speaking of The Hero's Guide, last week I finished reading:
The Hero's Guide to Storming the Castle which comes out on April 30th. My students know I have the ARC of this book and many of them are a tad irked that it's taken me so long to finish it.
Last week I finished listening:
Need by Carrie Jones
The Wright 3 by Blue Balliett
Other books I read and enjoyed last week:
Babymouse: Heartbreaker by Jennifer L. and Matthew Holm
Please, Puppy, Please! by Spike and Tonya Lewis Lee, illustrated by Kadir Nelson
Notes from Ghost Town by Kate Ellison
The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen
