I am traveling this week and working on my mini iPad. Which is great for reading but not the best for extended writing. Typing with my thumbs is ok but I prefer a key board. (I must be showing my age)
So short and sweet
I read the Forbidden Stone (book 1 of The Copernicus Legacy) by Tony Abbott. This author is new to me but has written 100’s of children’s books. It is a wonderful middle grades adventure book. There will be six in the series with book two coming out next October. Check it out!
It is a great book for students to do a bit of research both on science topics and geography of the world. I am glad I read it first and marked places where I will stop and have students gather more information before I continue to read. A great way to show students how fiction writer use real facts and information in their writing.
The award books I haven’t read yet-
- Doll Bones
- The Paper Boy
and a few others! Happy Reading!
