This week’s book talks 11/29-12/2

4 Dec

A four-day week, so four book talks…and I can only remember three titles. I should write the titles down before I leave each Friday. Sigh. There was no theme, but I notice now that every book title begins with a “B”. Maybe that’s why I can’t remember the fourth book. It doesn;t follow the pattern.

First up was Bloody Jack, the first book in L. A. Meyer’s excellent series.

I’ve written about this series before. In my book talk, I told my students that I listened to the whole series n audiobook and highly recommend the narrator, Katherine Kellgren.

Wednesday seems to be a blur because I can’t remember what book I talked about.

Thursday was Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

In talking about this book, I let the kids know that I shelved it in the Magical Animals tub, but it could just as easily have gone into the Humor or Mystery and Adventure tubs. That seemed to appeal to several boys, who I say writing down the title on their “Read Next”page.

A lot of kids added Friday’s title, Brambleheart by Henry Cole, to their “Read Next”page.

There was an audible response when I told them that this was by the author of A Nest for Celeste.  Most of them were familiar with that book because it was an elementary OBOB book several years ago. I told them that, although it was written for an audience younger than they were, it is sometimes once to curl up with a book that feels familiar on a cold rainy day.

I hope you were able to curl up with something good this weekend.

    These look like great stories. I’m going to recommend them to my Elementary School Librarian. 🙂
