|Puppets and Reading, a great mix!
Here's a list of some of my favorite books:
All of Jane Austen's titles, but Pride and Prejudice
is at the top of the list, with Persuasion coming in a close second.
Young Adult titles:
Twilight by Stephanie Meyer - who would have thought I would like vampire stories?
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld - great thought-provoking, futuristic series.
Godless by Pete Hautman - did not make "the list".
Middle School titles:
The Emperor's Eyes by Graham Salisbury - Excellent boy's read.
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan - Okay, Rick just because you came to visit and got all my
kids excited about reading about Percy Jackson, you made my list.
The Liberation of Gabriel King by Kelly L. Going
Lower School titles:
Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate Camillo - Definitely a tear-jerker.
The Library Lion by Michelle Knudsen - Because Michelle Knudsen is a sweetheart author and editor.
Stephanie's Ponytail by Robert Munsch - Favorite tell it to them story.
