Boundless Grace
Boundless Grace - Mary Hoffman

This story continues the story of Grace, from Amazing Grace. This one tells the story of her and her journey to see her father. As well as, her coming to terms that she doesn't have the same type of family as everyone else. We used this in my CT's class to infer about how Grace was feeling throughout the book. I think we could also use this to explain to the children that not everyone has the "normal" family as Grace has put it. But that doesn't mean that their family is less than others.

Amazing Grace
Amazing Grace - Mary Hoffman,Caroline Binch

This book has been read to my 3rd graders. I think it's a good book to tell the kids that they can be anything no matter what others say about them. Skin Tone, Religion, or Gender can come between you and your dreams. Only you can. Also this book can be used to talk about what happens when someone is bullied about something.

Corduroy - Don Freeman

This is one of my favorite books. Ever since I was little I have loved this book. I think it is a really good book to read to your children and at home from a very early age. I also think that it is a good book to give to young readers. It could be used to teach children not to judge people by the way that they look.

I Can Read with My Eyes Shut!
I Can Read With My Eyes Shut! - Dr. Seuss

I Can Read with My Eyes Shut!, by Dr. Seuss, is a book about reading.  The Cat in the Hat takes Young Cat out and shows him all of the fun things he can read about and learn when he reads a book.  The rhymes are catchy and in the traditional Dr. Seuss style.  Illustrations in this book are fantastic and will catch most children's attention easily.  As with most Dr. Seuss books, there are nonsense words, objects, and places galore.


I Can Read with My Eyes Shut! is a great book to use with kindergarten and first grade students. Even reluctant readers will be drawn in by the rhymes and illustrations.  It's loaded with sight words and advanced kindergarteners and average first graders should be able to read it with minimal assistance. This book would be a good choice to read as part of a writing lesson, as almost every page can serve as a writing prompt.

The Legend of Diamond Lil: A J.J. Tully Mystery (J. J. Tully Mysteries) - Doreen Cronin,Kevin Cornell

Diamond Lil comes to live next door to J.J. Tully but she comes with a secret.  While the two of them strike up a friendship it seems as though J.j. is right not to trust her.  When he finds out her secret he realizes the danger they were all in.


I love this series.  Vincent the Funnel turns informant this time around.  Lil is not what she seems.  The chicks are as wild as ever and Mama Chicken is, indeed, a broody hen.  I loved the story.


I hope more stories about J. J. Tully are coming.  I just love the 1940's gumshoe style.
