We had Educators Night at Green Bean Books this past Wednesday evening. It was great to share some books we were excited about- and to get some recommendations from teachers, as well!
And, if you’re on Twitter, don’t forget to use the hashtag #IMWAYR when sharing your link!
Children’s Books Read This Week
-I Am So Handsome by Mario Ramos [*] Another instance in which I read the sequel before the first book.

-The Dunderheads by Paul Fleischman, Illustrated by David Roberts [*]
Skippyjon Jones by Judy Schachner [*/+] I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!
-Abraham Lincoln by Ingri and Edgar Parin d’Aulaire [**- Pick of the Week] [Caldecott Reading Challenge] Wonderful biography for kids of a great man

My Rating Scale
X= Skip it!
*= Liked it
+= Not a rating but I just wanted to share which books I read on We Give Books. You can read about why I think We Give Books is so great here.
I was reading “The Shadow of the Wind” by Carlos Ruiz Zafon but I had to return it to the library. It was getting so good, too! I did check out some more books for my Caldecott Reading Challenge!
Happy Reading Week everyone!
