Hello readers! It’s that time of the week again, when we share the books we’ve been enjoying! I’m also open to any posts about helping others learn to read or improve their reading skills (including adults). Basically, anything literacy-related is fair game.
We’ve been on a kid-friendly superhero books kick lately. Hopefully, you saw my review of the Sky Girl($) books last week which we loved. I’ve extended that giveaway one more week, so if you haven’t entered yet, make sure to hop over there and do so! Then this week, Bignificent picked up the book Defenders of the Universe($) at the school library.
She read it herself and brought it to Daddynificent, saying, “I think you’ll really like this book, Daddy.” He started flipping through it, and about an hour later, I heard from him, “Tina, you’ve got to read this book. It is so good! I love it!” and he began to expound on the many themes he loved from this book. By then, both Middlenificent and I were intrigued so she picked it up and read all 15 chapters by herself! (She’s six!) I finally got a turn, and I must say that I agree with them! It’s a really great book for boys and girls alike! We went hunting to find out more about the author, D.V. Kelleher and have come up empty. I found one other out-of-print book she’s written which we will definitely be hunting down. Has anyone heard of this author? We are huge new fans!
And finally, I wanted to ask one more time since NOBODY responded last week 🙁 if any of you have advice or experience with online book clubs. I would really love to hear your words of wisdom before I get started in this one my friend has asked me to start for her site! What has and hasn’t worked? Any thoughts and suggestions are most welcome! It will most likely be a fiction one as opposed to non-fiction.
How about you? What have you been reading? I really love to hear your recommendations!
