Happy First Day of School!
I know some of you have been back to school for a while, and some of you don’t go to school anymore…. so, Happy Tuesday to you!
This fall, my children’s literature students have a great list of books to choose from for their literature circles. It’s a good mix of some old favorites and some new stars. Here they are:
The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill
The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis
Call It Courage by Armstrong Sperry
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred Taylor
A Year Down Yonder by Richard Peck
Contemporary Realistic Fiction
From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg
Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds
The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
Hello, Universe by Erin Entrada Kelly
Holes by Louis Sachar
It’s going to be a great semester! Enjoy the new season!

Such great stories… I think my fav three are the girl who drank the moon, the one and Only Ivan, and call it Courage! But all of them are sooo good!
I know! I love all these books.
