Another full five-day week. That makes two in a row! President’s Day on Monday will break this streak, but I’m willing to suffer through another day off.
I bookended this week with nofiction, too. Monday’s book was Phineas Gage: A Gruesome but True Story About Brain Science by John Fleischman.
Friday’s book was Blizzard by Jim Murphy.
In between, there was poetry and fiction.
Red Butterfly by A. L. Sonnichsen is novel in verse about a Chinese girl with a deformed hand raised in secret by an American woman must navigate China’s strict adoption system.
The idea of starting a mini-revolution got them excited about I kile the Mockingbird by Paul Acampora.
I explianed how advanced readers copies work on Thursday. Now, many students want to read Gordon Korman’s Restart before their peers.
