Vancouver Kidsbooks just had its annual sale so a little book shopping was necessary!
Kate DiCamillo is a favourite author (Because of Winn Dixie, The Tale of Despereaux). Her beginning chapter book series (about Mercy Watson, an adored pet pig) was an instant hit in our classroom. So much so I had to choose numbers between 1 and 100 to pass out the first 3 books in the series to eager little hands during quiet reading this morning. And the books each have an understood “I’m next” list attached to them.
We also got the new Binky book by Ashley Spires! Binky the Space Cat has been a very popular book in our Graphics bin.
The newest Binky (Binky to the Rescue) flew off the new book ledge as well!
Happy reading everyone!
