Summer Reading Challenge Week 7

We are already at week 7 in Summer Reading! Wow time flies! Here’s our latest updates:

Mrs. Janson has read 90 books so far! Her favorite book for when company comes over is Martha Moth Makes Socks by Cambria Evans. Here’s a description from amazon.com, “It’s Martha Moth’s birthday, and her friends are coming over for dinner. She makes a quick trip to the store, where she picks up:
1 polka-dot scarf, 2 itchy socks, 1 shrunken sweater, and 2 kinds of scrumptious yarn.
Now Martha’s ready to get cooking! She’s just going to taste everything first to make sure it’s as good as it looks . . .” You can find it in the library in the easy section under the call number E Evans. Enjoy!

 

Mrs. Sara has read for 800 minutes so far! My favorite book has been The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly. Here’s what it’s about, ” Calpurnia Virginia Tate is eleven years old in 1899 when she wonders why the yellow grasshoppers in her Texas backyard are so much bigger than the green ones.With a little help from her notoriously cantankerous grandfather, an avid naturalist, she figures out that the green grasshoppers are easier to see against the yellow grass, so they are eaten before they can get any larger. As Callie explores the natural world around her, she develops a close relationship with her grandfather, navigates the dangers of living with six brothers, and comes up against just what it means to be a girl at the turn of the century.” (from amazon.com). Right now all of our copies are checked out because we are using this book for a book club next week, but normally you can find it in the library under the call number Juv Fic Kelly. 

Keep reading if you want that ice cream!
