COCKBLOCK by C.V. Hunt, narrated by Ramona Master
Cockblock - Ramona Master,Roderick Hunt,Roderick Hunt

 

Callie and Sonya are on their way for a nice date night, when all of a sudden they are verbally assaulted by some men on the street. As the men got closer, the assault became physical and soon they are running for their lives. They discover that a message from the president is being broadcast nationwide and it's affecting men all over the country. How does it affect them? Will Callie and Sonya make it out alive? You'll have to read this short book to find out!

 

All of my horror loving friends that have read this have rated it fairly high. I love and trust them so when I saw this available in the Audiobook Boom! listing, I requested it right away. And now, here we are. 

 

Incredibly graphic and violent, while at the same time kind of hilarious, C.V. Hunt has worked some magic here. A somewhat derisive view of the president and politics in general is worked into the story as well. It's not in your face, but it's there and that's just fine with me. In a world where we shame rape victims for speaking out, where we often treat the perpetrators as young men who just made a mistake,

I enjoyed this story where women finally triumph over that culture.

 

(spoiler show)

 

I listened to this on audio and I admit it took me a while to get used to the narrator. It must have been difficult for her at times, because as I said above there are some incredibly brutal scenes here. I gained respect as the story unwound and ended up enjoying her quite a bit.

 

Brutal, tongue in cheek, (and in many other places in this story), violent, graphic, and with an eye toward our current political environment, COCKBLOCK, is original, imaginative, sarcastic, and has a clear vision of what it wants to say. The only question that remains is are you brave enough to hear it?

 

Highly recommended to those horror fans who can handle brutal violence and rape.

 

*Thanks to the narrator and to Audiobook Boom! for the audio of this novella in exchange for my honest feedback. This is it!*

We're Going on a Bear Hunt - Michael Rosen

This book is a great picture book that could be used in the lower elementary grades. This book can easily transition to music. The book is meant to be sung by the reader.

I would use this book to introduce students into choral reading.

Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes
Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes - Eric Litwin,James Dean

It's Pete the Cat's first day of school! In this story, we see Pete "rocking" his new shoes all around his new school. In my classroom, I would read this on the first day or during the first week. If I was teaching Kindergarten, I would take my class on a scavenger hunt to find all the places around the school and have a Pete cut-out waiting for them at each stop. If I was teaching a grade where the students were familiar with the school, I would have them do a scavenger hunt in our classroom. I think this would be such a fun beginning of the year activity!
