I always seem to read Corey Rosen Schwartz and Tara Lazar's books at the same time. In the spring I read Little Red Gliding Hood and Ninja Red Riding Hood. This week I read two other books by these authors along with two middle grade and one YA novel.
Here's what I've read this week:
A fun story about what it means to be "normal." I love the way Tara set up the book as a science experiment gone "wrong."
If you haven't read any of Corey Rosen Schwartz's ninja fractured fairytales, you really should find all three. In this latest story, Hensel and Gretel save the day by using their ninja training.
I chose Pax because it is one of the Global Read Aloud books of 2016. It's a story of friendship, growth, and discover told from alternating points of view between a boy and his pet fox.
A story about bullying and self-evaluation. It's labeled middle grade and has an 11yo protagonist, but I felt it was for an older reader.
Book 2 in the Court of Fives series (borrowed from NetGalley).
My summer goal stands at 5/10 picture books, 10/10 middle grade, 5 YA, and 1 professional book. I continued beta reading and read a new chapter of another critique partner's book. I also revised the beginning of my novel and sent the first chapters to my critique group. Overall, it was a successful reading and writing week. On Wednesday I will flying out to the Society of Children Book Writer and Illustrator's summer conference in LA (whoo hoo!). I'm sure I'll get a bunch of new book recommendations and there'll be lots of time for reading on the plane.
