I haven't thought of Matilda in years. Ronald Dahl was such a great author.BarbaraGrade ONEderfulRuby Slippers Blog Designs
Love The False Prince...and Jennifer Nielsen...and the fact that this book has helped so many of my more dormant readers find "joy" in reading this year! I also love Betsy Byars and haven't read Tornado. Will add that one to my list!
The Hundred Dresses - great story! Thanks for reminding me of this book, I have a group of second graders who would enjoy the story. Have you read the picture book, Each Kindness by Jaqueline Woodson? Very similar theme.
I have my own copy of The Hundred Dresses, I think. Such a lovely powerful book. Moon Over Manifest is a personal favorite - I think I must have earmarked the copy I borrowed from the library quite a lot. :) I meant to review it but didn't get around to doing it. :) Have a great reading week!
Currently loving Twelve Kinds of Ice-a gift from a parent. http://www.amazon.com/Twelve-Kinds-Ellen-Bryan-Obed/dp/0618891293I also love the fact that the author grew up and still live in Maine!
My son was such a Roald Dahl fan as a wee lad. I miss snuggling up with him and reading and laughing and enjoying being together. happy readingsandi
