I have finished lots of interesting books but want to do them justice when I talk about them, too much to do.
47 by Walter Mosley (audio version recommended by Dr. Teri Lesesne)
Day of Tears by Julius Lester (powerful, riveting, could not put it down)
Whales on Stilts by M. T. Anderson --(I am still pondering this one - weird, odd, bizarre, funny, different, enjoyable and the best opening sentence I have read in a while)
Miss Lady Bird's Wildflowers : How a First Lady Changed America by Kathi Appelt
Bubba and Beau, Best Friends by Kathi Appelt (Great read alouds!)
Bubba and Beau Go Night-Night by Kathi Appelt
I am in the middle of reading Permanent Rose by Hilary McKay
