Earlier this month I decided to give myself a Newbery Book Challenge.
Getting a head start over the holiday break before the hustle and bustle of school routine returns.
- Island of the Blue Dolphins – December 31, 2013 – After reading this book I believe I did actually read it when I was younger. Still a wonderful story and now that I know that Karana ended up at the Santa Barbara mission I will go back there and learn more about her.
- Walk Two Moons – December 30, 2013 – A beautiful story of a girl in search of her mother.
- Holes – December 29, 2013 – This is a book I kept picking up and never reading. I’m so glad that I finally did. Lessons of what is and is not fair tied with fun twists and realizations along the way.
- From The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler – December 28, 2013 – A wonderful fun and insightful story of a sister and brother on an adventure of a life-time.
