This week I continued with my reading challenge.
Just One More by Jennifer Hansen Rolli
This book was a pretty cute story about a young girl that just wants ONE MORE! This book was a very simple read and could be used for almost any age. I would give it 6/10 because the story is very simple.
The Great Aaa-ooo by Jonny Lambert
This book is a mystery on who did the great aaa-ooo. The characters of the story are animals not humans so it gives a different perspective from the other books I read today. Overall, the illustrations were pretty basic and not very exciting so for that I would give a 5/10.
The Rag Coat by Lauren A. Mills
This book was a little too sad for my taste but it has a great message. The story is about Minna who get a coat made of scrape cloth from The Quilting Mothers. Minna is bullied at school because of the coat but Minna does something very heartwarming that you need to read it to get the full affect! 8/10
David Gets in Trouble by David Shannon
In this book, David gets in trouble but the reason why or how he got in trouble make the book worth the read. It was a fun, lighthearted read that I would recommend to any teacher for any grade! 9/10
No! No! No! by Anne Rockwell
This book follows a young boy that goes though a lot of bad things during the day. However, at the end of it all, mother always has a solution to every bad thing that happened. I thought this was very cute and quick to read. 7/10
There’s a Boy in the Girl’s Bathroom by Louis Sachar
This book follows Bradley who does not get along with his classmate but does get along with Carla, the school counselor. The school then decides to let Carla go and the story shows Bradley’s struggles without Carla. This book was pretty interesting, the title is a little misleading but overall it was okay. 5/10
The Islander by Cynthia Rylant
This story follows David who lives with his Grandpa on an island. David meets a mermaid and a sea otter. The sea otter give him a key and David goes on exploring the mysteries of the island and his grandfather. This book was okay as well, I would not use this book to teach in class because it was something I did not find incredibly interesting. 5/10
Until next time,

I really enjoyed reading your blog. Some of the books I have never heard about, but they really caught my attention. I will have to add them to my list. Which book is the favorite one you read this week? Thank you for the book suggestions.
My favorite this week was probably David gets in trouble just because it was hilarious.
