    I just ordered a few of these for our library for fall! It’s cool to see them on here. I am going to have to put the rest on our wish list! Have a great week. 🙂

    Thank you for posting these NF titles! I can never have enough of these in my classroom. I recently read The Pilot and The Little Prince. I was astounded. How did I not know the connection between airplanes and The Little Prince? Fascinating. Thanks for sharing your reading life!

    The Little Prince is included in my top 10 favorite books. It’s nice to know that Peter Sis did a biographical feature on Antoine de Saint-Exupery! One Beetle Too Many sounds like a wonderful read as well! =)
