Ready to Vote?

The Children's Book Week display has been nearly empty for several weeks.  

 I 'm guessing this means we have lots of students who have some opinions to share about the nominees.  Read and View more about them on Teaching Books.

VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE (all votes are due by Thursday, May 9th).

Stolen Children

      Stolen Children is one of my favorite books I have read! Stolen Children is exciting, humorous, dangerous, and much much more!  But one of my favorite parts was how is focused so much on abduction.  This book showed a real life scene that could happen at any given moment.  Stolen Children by Peg Kehert  is definitely one book you should put on your must read list!

The Thirteenth Princess

Did you like this book?
Yes, I really liked this book. It was a fantastic fantasy book because it always urged me to read on. The book was about a girl named Zita. She was the king’s thirteenth princess. After Zita was born her mom died and the king always thought it was Zita's fault. She couldn't live with her sisters and her father up in the bed chamber. Zita had to live down stairs under the palace with the servants. Zita was always a servant. But soon her sisters start to get REALLY sick and Zita thinks it is magic. Every night the princesses wake up and go to a lake in a faraway kingdom where they dance till dawn. But this is killing the sisters. Will Zita be able to save her sisters and get back her fathers love? Read to find out!
