I hope you are in a part of the country that has had this gorgeous sunshine! I can't help but stop at every window to enjoy it. This weekend I am spending a lot of time reading, because I am taking an online course from ALSC about Newbery's -- the history, misconceptions, and mystique's. It is great, because I have not read many of them, feeling like they must include at least one chapter with a dead dog! We are reading through the decades, looking at trends, and reading articles that come from those decades. I'll let you know if I enjoy more Newberys after this course is finished.
So far I have read: The Voyages of Dr. Dolittle, The Cat Who Went to Heaven, and Rabbit Hill. Do you see a trend emerging in my reading choices?
BTW, has anyone gone to see "I am Number 4"? I read the book and am wondering about the movie. So let me know.
