Art Kindle Freebies
Pedro Cervantes - Aldama Fine Art
Circles of Delight: Classic Carousels of... Circles of Delight: Classic Carousels of San Francisco - Aaron Shepard

FYI - the Pedro Cervantes book is still free in the US.

 

I don't read or speak Spanish, and I brought the Cervantes book largely because I wanted to look at more of his artwork.  The book does include a timeline and an essay.  The photos of his works are quite good, and with a price of zip,well worth it.

 

Circles of Delight - is, sadly, no longer free.  Shepherd is better known for his children's version of various fables and fairy tales.  This book is a look at the carousels in San Fran.  The history of the carousels is short, but the photos are beautiful.  I love that he paid attention to areas of the actual structure as well as the mounts.

Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard
Pretty Little Liars - Sara Shepard

This was okay.
It was like Clueless in a lot of ways, but with added mystery. That was never solved.
I felt like the characters and their teenage ways were the best part of the story. The writing was a little scattered though in the beginning. I found it hard to know what was going on, but I caught up in the middle and it got better for me.
I even have the first season of the show now, so I can see how the adaption is. It's quite popular after all. You'll see what I think about that too.

Not a Proper Child: A True Story of Abuse, Violence, and Survival Against the Odds - Elizabeth Shepard,Nicky Nicholls

This is Nicky’s story of how she was abused and betrayed by the people who should’ve protected and loved her the most. It is distressing to witness just how cruel and horrible some people can be. Anyone not moved by this memoir must have a heart of stone.

Winnie-The-Pooh
Winnie-the-Pooh - Ernest H. Shepard,A.A. Milne

I had to add this book to my list because it is my all time favorite book EVER! Winnie-The-Pooh is a sweet little bear who LOVES honey, it's almost all he thinks about! Pooh also loves to go on adventures with his best friend Christopher Robin, as well as Tigger, Piglet, Kanga, Roo, and Rabbit. Winnie-The-Pooh was actually a story written by A.A Milne for his son, Christopher Robin.He wrote the stories in a way that incorporated his son in them with all of his sons favorite stuffed animals. It quickly reached the public and has been famous ever since. 

 

How I would use this book in my class:

I will read this book to my students one day in the hopes of getting them excited to read. I will express how this book is my favorite and always puts me in the mood to read! I will tell them that one day they too will find a book that makes them feel that way. I would also use this book in a lesson on famous authors (example being A.A Milne) and have my students do a research project on any of their favorite authors (or I can give them a author if they don't know of any).

 

DRA: 40

Silly Ole Bear
Winnie-the-Pooh - Ernest H. Shepard,A.A. Milne

This book, along with all the tales of Winnie the Pooh, are some of my all time favorite stories. This cute story is filled with friendship and adventure. My cooperating teacher put aside the last part of the day when students were waiting for car riders and buses to be called, to read them a story. I loved that she made time for this, and that is exactly what I would do with this book in my classroom. This book is written on a DRA reading level of 40. It can be read with or to students of all students from kindergarten to fifth grade. It is a classic, and already part of my library. I love it! It would be silly for you not to love it too.
