Before I left the library today, I grabbed a bunch of new fiction books that I'd been wanting to read. I'm glad to see I hadn't put a spine label on this yet because I may have just put in the fiction collection, when it definitely should be in the easy readers. I'm doing a new section for those easy readers, as we have youngsters come in for "Good fit books" (Daily 5 curriculum) and we are lacking in that area. But this book is fantastic for that! So I'm glad I read it - it didn't add to my minutes read, much (up to 2 hours, 35 minutes now) but I'll check out his other books, too. Students will really like this book.
(This 48-Hour Book Challenge is such a reminder as to how important reading lots of children's books is imperative for quality reader's advisory!)
And yes, I know what books I buy for the collection, but we added over 1,000 new books at the elementary school today, so forgive me for forgetting what kinds are which!
