Some of my students had this to say about, Unusual Chickens for the Exceptional Poultry Farmer by Kelly Jones:
4 1/2 * I like that she writes letters as the text.
I also like that she finds more chickens as the book goes on.
4* It's funny, sad and an interesting writing form.
4* Funny book and sometimes sad and mysterious
4* Funny, sad and weird.
5* This book was great!
It was mysterious, interesting, funny and sad.
We had a great time at Starbucks in East Greenbush (except for the fact that I spilled some hot chocolate!)
|Can you believe this is a summer book club? These kids are awesome!|
|Look how serious they are!|
And the obligatory LEAP!
A week later we met at 16 Handles for our Roller Girl by Victoria Jamieson book club meeting.
We talked about what our roller derby names might be. Here are a few the students came up with:
I love these! The kids loved the book. They thought it was funny and sad. One said she "liked the book and would read it a lot." Most of the ratings were 5*!
|Frozen yogurt with a side of Roller Girl. Yum!|
The rain stopped so we could jump!
I can't seem to find the reviews for Book Scavenger by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman but know that the kids loved that book, too! They loved the mystery!
What a summer filled with great reading! I am looking forward to a fall filled with just as many good books!
