It’s been a busy week prepping and moving to a new place. The only books I seem to have read this week were the ones I needed to make shelftalkers for.
Also, I wrote another post on my work’s blog about some board books that I thought were quite fun.
I did also volunteer more than usual at the Children’s Book Bank. They’re currently in the midst of a huge project cleaning and sorting through 100,000 books that’s going to the hands of 5,000 kids! I definitely wanted to be part of this literacy push!
Finally, every time I recommend the Ladybug Girl series to customers, I tell them about the upcoming Read for Record on October 4th!
Books Read This Week
-The Crying Tree by Naseem Rahka [**- My Pick of the Week]- Powerful and moving
-Not a Box by Antoinette Portis [*] Highly imaginative
-Not a Stick by Antoinette Portis [*]
-A Trip to the Bottom of the World with Mouse by Frank Viva [**] A great graphic novel to introduce kids in the genre. Already, I’m looking forward to his next “Toon” title coming out in April 2013, “A Long Way Away”
-Along a Long Road by Frank Viva [*]

I finally got back “The Shadow of the Wind” from the library but, not only will there be two Jasper Fforde books coming out on Tuesday, I should read “The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom” by Christopher Healy since he’s coming to our store in October!
Happy Reading Week everyone!
