Library Loot - May 21, 2009
Wings by Jason Lethcoe
My intern supervisor is going to run a Mock Newbery club and this is a contender. I'm going to try and read all of them with her so that I can initiate this club at school in the Fall!
Great Call of China by Cynthea Liu
Our school just started an exchange program with China and we are trying to find trade books for our students to read. This one looks good! Cece was raised American and has an opportunity to travel to China in an Exchange program. She hopes to learn more about her past.
Library Loot is brought to you courtesy of Striped Armchair. Check out her blog for more reading matl.
Side Note: Since I'm going to work with Kris on the 2010 Mock Newbery, I won't be reading much outside of books received for review and possible contenders for the award. This will change my reading plan. I hope to learn more about reading for a variety of ages since Newbery's cover birth - 14!
