Welcome to the 2018-19 school year.  It’s already almost spring!  The year is flying by.  I’m excited that we have a book fair coming up next month. The book fair dates are March 25th-29th.  There are always new selections and award winning books to choose from. 

I just completed the Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl with my team.  It was a great experience even though we didn’t “win” the competition. I think the “win” for us was the experience of the competition and the books that we read both separately and together.  Our team favorites were Refugee by Alan Gratz and The Ethan I Was Before by new novelist, Ali Standish. These books represented different genres but both, in my opinion, are skillfully crafted works of literature.  Refugee is historical fiction while The Ethan I Was Before is realistic fiction.  It will be a close call for me to cast my vote for one.  You should check them out if you haven’t read them.  

Thanks for visiting my blog and please let me know about rich reads that you discover. We are always trying to grow out collection.  

Happy reading!
