The Doctor and Peri in steampunk Rome
State of Change (Doctor Who: The Missing Adventures) - Christopher Bulis

After taking Peri to snap photographs of Cleopatra's barge as it sails down the Nile, the Doctor and his companion set course for their next destination: Rome in the 2nd century AD. Upon landing, however, they find that they've journeyed forward only a few decades and that they have arrived in a Rome with electric lighting and dirigibles floating in the sky. With the Doctor's TARDIS inexplicably cut off from the Eye of Harmony the two scramble to restore the ship's power and unravel the mystery the steam-powered Rome one which will lead them to one of the Doctor's most dangerous enemies.

 

With over a dozen novels to his credit, Christopher Bulis ranks as among the most prolific contributors to the various series of Doctor Who novels in the 1990s and 2000s. Reading this book, it's easy to see why. His novel is a brisk work that nicely conveys the larger world in which Bulis sets it. Best of all is his portrayal of the sixth Doctor, which conveys all of the best parts of the character without any of the flaws which made his tenure on the show so controversial. While the plot itself has plenty of formulaic elements, the novel itself is an enjoyable read that will provide many fans of the franchise with a pleasant way to pass the time.

This book was my childhood. Period.
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

Honestly I feel unworthy to even give this book a review because I feel it is a blanket understanding that this book is the greatest book ever written. Ever. How one book can move even the most stubborn hearts and oldest souls, as well and melt the hearts of the young who it was written for I have no idea. If you haven’t read it, go now and take tissues.   A great story that reminds us love is the best gift of all. And although I would like to use this book in lessons as well, I thought about doing something a little different in my room and having our own class giving tree but instead of the tree giving away it’s leavea, we as a class throughout the year build our tree up with compliments to each other as well as me giving compliments out to individual students. The compliment and student’s name will go on the leaf and they get to hang their leaf on the tree where they would like. A great positive visual in the classroom to promote a giving heart.

He was so hungry... he really ate through the book.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Eric Carle

This book is a book that will forever be associated with an elementary classroom because every student thought it was so amazing that the book itself looked like a caterpillar has eaten through the pages. The pictures are so colorful and vibrant and even though there aren’t many words, thw story like is clear and the book is nothing less than spectacular. I will definitely use this book to teach the life cycle of certain insects and animals as well as hopefully get the chance to have some class caterpillars that we can watch go through the different phases to a butterfly.
