CELEBRATE EASTER WITH THE RABBIT MAN, AND DUNCAN RALSTON!

cover, where the monsters live, duncan ralston

How far would you go for revenge?

Synopsis:

When a six-year-old girl is abused and left for dead by a pedophile known only as the “Rabbit Man” due to the claw marks left on her body, police follow every lead but reach only dead ends.

Hungry for justice, her grieving father abandons wife and child on a harrowing journey deep undercover into Miami’s sex offender colony under the Julia Tuttle Causeway. His purpose is simple: to find the “Rabbit Man” among them, and put him in the ground.

Months later, with no one to trust and the pedophiles he lives among growing suspicious of his actions, he learns nothing is simple where the monsters live.

 

Hoppy Easter! Come see what I put in your basket...

WHERE THE MONSTERS LIVE is NOT an extreme horror story, but I still want you to have a little ‘heads up’ before you start reading.

The story is not super graphic in an icky way, but it's emotionally graphic. WTML will sucker punch you right in the feels. It's a disturbing story, and the 'uncomfort' level rises drastically if you have a child of your own.
I didn’t notice just HOW 'emotionally graphic' it was until The Dark Defender woke up to ask me what was wrong, and I had tears streaming down my cheeks.

 

At one point I thought I knew exactly how this story was going to end (we’ll talk about that once you finish reading). That wouldn’t have made it a suck story – but I am happy that WTML didn’t go for the ‘ironic twist’, and I’m very satisfied with how it’s wrapped up – there could be a little wiggle room JIC case the story isn’t done with us yet.

 

Full review posted HERE - come join in on the discussion of WTML!

Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

This book will have you turning the book all kinds of ways to see if you think the main character is a duck or a rabbit. The reader may turn it one way and it could be a duck and another way it can be a rabbit. I can use this book in my classroom to do a lesson on compare and contrast. I can also use it to see my students visual perspectives are of the main character.

The Velveteen Rabbit
The Velveteen Rabbit - William Nicholson,Margery Williams

The Velveteen Rabbit written by Margery Williams is a 4.7 on the Accelerated Reading leveling system. The book is about a stuffed rabbit that loves his boy. One day the boy gets sick and must throw out the stuffed bunny because it carries germs. This makes the rabbit sad. However, the rabbit soon turns into a real bunny and gets to live a new life in the forest next to the boy's house. This is a perfect book for young children as a read aloud for the beginning of school. It demonstrates that growing up is inevitable, but it is also very exciting.

Duck! Rabbit!
Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

This book would be good for looking at the perception of situations or for looking at the creative minds of others. After we read the book, I would give them a piece of paper and they will draw a duck or a rabbit and we will vote on which animal we thought it was. Perception in a child's eye is important because they see things that we don't. I would want to foster their creativity and allow them to express themselves in whatever way they want. The reading grade for this book I think is Kindergarten and up. You can use this in any grade to show differences and perception. The Lexile Level is AD20L.

Duck! Rabbit!
Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

Lexile Level: AD20L

 

This book is made up of pictures that could trick your brain into seeing different animals. The reader has to decide in the book if what they are looking at is in fact a duck or a rabbit. This book would be a great discussion starter to see what your students are thinking and to see who sees a duck and who sees a rabbit. I think kindergarten through second grade would love this book and to really open their minds to different possibilities.
