The Rainbow Fish
The Rainbow Fish - Marcus Pfister,J. Alison James

This book teaches a valuable lesson on friendship. It tells about the most beautiful fish in the ocean who refuses to share one of his shining scales. All the fish in the sea leave him alone, and he goes to the wise octopus for advice. She tells him to give away his scales, and he does except for one. He is less beautiful, but he ends up with new friends and is the happiest fish in the sea.

This would be a great activity to do at the beginning of the year and let students decorate a fish with different colored scales that have how they can be a good friend written on them. 

 

Lexile: AD 610L

Gang Of Fools
Gang of Fools - James Otis Smith

I really didn't like this.

And Dystopian settings are usually among my favorites but I just couldn't get myself to like Gang of Fools. I felt a fool reading it because it came across as very chaotic. There are so many story lines, all of which we are old just slightly to little to either completely get it or care about the character. I got the idea the author just wanted to throw as much as possible at the reader in hope of shocking them. I'm sure it was a clever story, but it really wasn't for me. Also the art didn't work for me, it felt rushed at some times and chaotic at others, filling the panels with a lot of text and characters.

It really wasn't for me.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

here's a little update: The film played in my town one week. 

 

One week. Damn, I'm glad I went on the first night. 

In the meantime, Aquaman and Bumblebee are still going strong.

Pete The Cat Rocking In My School Shoes is a fun engaging book that would be great to read on the first day of school to students. One activity that could go with this book would be for students to write about their favorite thing about the first day of school. This book is a level 430L on the Lexile leveling system.
