November Update 2010

New books I enjoyed in November:

Artemis Fowl, Atlantis Complex by Eoin Colfer.   Fantasy
Continuing series.  I enjoyed this book as much as the others.

Crunch by Leslie Connor.  Science Fiction
This book is a fascinating look at the possibility of running out of gas.  The way the children in the story run a bicycle repair shop while their parents are stranded waiting for gas.

39 Clues #10, Into the Gauntlet by Margaret Peterson Haddix.  Adventure
Finale of the series was unforgettable from the beginning to the end.  Quite the adventure.

The Firefly Letters by Margarita Engle, excellent book in verse.  Historical Fiction

Featured favorites of the month:

EVERYBODY:  Knuffle Bunny Free by Mo Willems: The final story in the Knuffle Bunny trilogy was a beautiful conclusion to the touching growth of Trixie and her parents experiences as well.  The travel portion of this book is gorgeous.  Call Number: E WIL

number 3

NON-FICTION:  I Spy Shapes In Art by Lucy Micklethwait: Recently, I read a number of books which connected young readers to classic art pieces.  This book celebrates a number of pieces by playing an I-Spy game while reading and interpreting the art.  I felt like applauding after reading the book because it made art so approachable.  701 MIC

FICTION Rocky Road by Rose Kent:  This book provides a touching glimpse into the life of a girl who is swept up and down by her mother’s emotions and her experience of being moved across the country from Texas to New York and then the experience of helping her mother open a new ice cream shop.  Warning, delicious experiences throughout the book will have the reader yearning for an ice cream float and some fudge!  Call Number: FIC KEN
