I prefer to just completely ignore the fact that today is April Fool's Day. I'm just grateful we're off for Spring Break and I don't have to deal with students pranking me all day long!
Last week I received a great response for my teacher project request, but if you still haven't sent me anything and you've been thinking about doing it, you can still send me something. I really do want to hear from you, but I need it ASAP!
This week I am reading:
A Tangle of Knots by Lisa Graff
Twerp by Mark Goldblatt
Currently (still) listening:
How to Say Goodbye in Robot by Natalie Standiford
I am loving this book more and more as I continue with Bea and Jonah's journey. It's very much a book you could say, "If you like John Green, try Natalie Standiford..." which is a pretty bold statement to make, but Natalie's writing is sharp, intellectual, and biting just like John Green's. I am thoroughly enjoying this listening experience.
Last week I read and enjoyed:
Babymouse for President and Extreme Babymouse by Jennifer L. and Matthew Holm
Jon Stewart by Randy Scherer
Locomotion by Jacqueline Woodson
Unspoken: A Story from the Underground Railroad by Henry Cole
Exclamation Mark by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, illustrated by Mark Litchtenheld
Heart on Fire: Susan B. Anthony Votes for President by Ann Malaspina, illustrated by Steve James
A Woman for President: The Story of Victoria Woodhull by Kathleen Krull, illustrated by Jane Dyer
And finally, Frank decided to pose with my very first #bookaday of spring break, for obvious reasons I think:
Pug and Other Animal Poems by Valerie Worth, illustrated by Steve Jenkins
Last week I also posted about:
Reflecting on #TheWonderOfWonder
