I changed the name for my “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” posts to “My Reading Week.”
–Nonfiction Picture Book Reviews
A sweet story about thinking the grass is greener on the other side but also being okay with what you are.
I loved The Bear and the Piano and was pleased to learn there was a sequel. An old man quits playing the fiddle after being discouraged at not making it big. His dog picks up the instrument and becomes a musical sensation. Jealousy soon tears them apart. A sweet story about friendship and following your dreams.
A fun book to introduce the concept of time as a monkey chases minutes. Lots of visual things to entertain readers.
Fun rhythmic read following a frog through the seasons.
A fun early chapter book series about a motley crew of mythological creatures. In the first installment, a small gargoyles meets new friends and enemies in a school where they have to learn about teamwork in order to go on future adventures.
For some reason, I thought this was the source inspiration for the Barbra Streisand movie Funny Girl but it wasn’t. The main characters have different names. And I made the mistake of looking at the Wikipedia entry for it and I was given a major spoiler for something that happened towards the end of the book.
I didn’t enjoy Mansfield Park at all. Fanny wasn’t a strong and interesting enough character to be the lead.
If anyone wants to learn about the craft of writing, who better than such a prolific and successful author than Jane Yolen to learn from?
