Reading progress update: I've read 15%.American Noir with a hard boiled FBI guy being all no nonsense and probably about to have his mind blown
Huntress Moon - Alexandra Sokoloff

This FBI tale is so Joe Friday it took me a while to realise that it’s set in this decade. The man character is a thinker who still seems to have no awareness of how irrepressibly male his perceptions and assumptions are.


Im intrigued by the woman in black who seems to be the huntress of the title.


Its  a relief to move to this find-the-baddy. Kind of noir' filled with attitude but free of real introspection after having lived in the long night of Scandi Noir.

Cold Welcome - Elizabeth Moon

Another book that ended with a cliffhanger, which I'm not enjoying at this time. This is the second book I've read recently that does so. The story does drag a bit while they are in the cave/station, but otherwise I enjoyed it. My one complaint is SPOILER!! [it took them forever to reach the outside when they went through the tunnels and it seemed it took the baddies only a day even with self-locking/closing doors and the last door being extremely thick. How can the baddies be able to easily explode through doors that thick in mere minutes? For as long as the journey took Ky and the survivors (way too long in my opinion), the ease with which the villains went through them like tissue paper was unrealistic.

Goodnight Moon - Margaret Wise Brown,Clement Hurd


Brief Review:

Good night moon is about saying good night using rhyming words.

Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:

Good night moon could be used in the classroom to ask the students what their bedtime routine is who do you say good night to at the end of the day. The teacher could have the students sit in a circle discussing as a class.

Reading Level & Leveling System:

Lexile Scale


Pre-K to K 

Book Rating:

I would rate this book a 3 because it has a lot of rhyming words that students could use to practice rhyming words with.

Goodnight Moon
Goodnight Moon - Margaret Wise Brown,Clement Hurd

Lexile Level: AD360L

This picture book by Margaret Wise Brown uses rhyme as a bunny says goodnight to several objects surrounding him. The rhyming element and the detailed illustration make this book a perfect book for teachers to read aloud to kindergarten students. This book would be wonderful for a shared reading exercise in which students and the teacher read in unison while the teacher models fluency. The teacher could use the illustrations to teach students to read pictures as well as text while they are in the early stages of literacy. Students could also read this during small group guided reading as the teacher assesses their growing fluency. This book is calm, happy and comforting which makes it perfect for young students.

Goodnight Moon
Goodnight Moon - Margaret Wise Brown,Clement Hurd

Goodnight Moon is a classic story about a little rabbit saying goodnight to all of his belongings. The book has wonderful illustrations as well as rhyming. This story is a great book to include when teaching about rhyming words. It is ideal for young readers. As an extension activity, students could have visual cards and match each one to the card that rhymes with it. 


Lexile level: 360L
