Review: Flying Lessons and Other Stories

Flying Lessons and Other Stories Flying Lessons and Other Stories by Ellen Oh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a great way to introduce readers to a variety of diverse authors! Each story was interesting and rich. Ripe for discussion. I kept having moments where I would say to myself... let me see what else this author has written... I like his/her style! A "must add" to any middle school collection!

Review: Solo

Solo Solo by Kwame Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. So many little things I loved about this book. Kwame and Mary have written a beautiful gift. From California to Ghana, filled with highs and lows and love and loss and poetry and song... each page is a journey. #solobook #kwamealexander

Review: One

One One by Kathryn Otoshi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I've read this book several times now, and every time I am amazed at how powerful a message it packs. One person can make a difference. One person can lift another up and make them feel that they count. All this goodness... and it's also a great book to teach personification and colors too!!
