I am making January 20-February 20 (or there abouts) children's book month. I have a stack at home that I've been checking out so I am going to focus on just reading them.

Done With...
Listening for Lions by Gloria Whelan
*really enjoyed this. very The Little Princess type*
If a Tree Falls at Lunch Period by Gennifer Choldenko
*another quick, fun read*
The Runaway Princess by Kate Coombs
*good fairy tale for the new millenium*
How to Steal a Dog by Barbara O'Connor
*very good book about what being homeless*
The Name of This Book is Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch
*still not sure what it was about but I enjoyed reading it!*
Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney
*hysterical. such a normal kid, sort of annoying, makes bad decisions, but what he writes is so funny. you WILL laugh out loud, several times*
Gilda Joyce: Phsycic Investigator by Jennifer Allison
*this is first in a series of three about a young girl named Gilda Joyce. the book was fun with a good mystery and a bit of supernatural. the fun of the book is Gilda Joyce who is really fun, eccentric character.*
The Janitor's Boy by Andrew Clements
*so good. great story about a boy coming to know his father.*
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules by Jeff Kinney
*just as good as the first!*
Twisted by Laurie Halse Kinney
*great book. well written from a guy's point of view*


Carter and I have started our oh-so-exclusive Warnell Book Club. The first book we chose is:




The Janitor's Boy
His third grade teacher read it to him and he loved it so he is excited to read it again. Whatever gets him excited to read!
