Lovely!
Think Tank #1 - Matt Hawkins,Rahsan Ekedal

I wasn't into this, not the first time I tried to read this, and not at the beginning.   It's pretty typical in some ways: a DARPA scientist feels guilty about creating weapons and wants out.  In fact, I've seen this time and again in sci-fi/comics.   I didn't really see anything in the writing or art to make this original, but the second time around, I was just blown away by the art.   I must have been in a really bad mood, or place, the first time around, because I can't come up with any other reason for me to dismiss this eventually. 

 

The writing, and storyline, got much more interesting as we learn what the main character will choose to work on, and I suspect he'll try to use it to escape DARPA.   But for now, I knocked off one star because I'm not incredibly into this. 

 

The art, though?  I would try anything else by this artist.   Black and white, expressive, beautiful, I just can't get enough of this art.   Honestly, this was going to be a three star review, and would have been, if I hadn't been so blown away by the art.

I would certainly recommend this one.
Time Out - Tony Talbot

This was a fantastic short story, full of amazingly well written scenes and just enough information to make the story gut-wrenching.

 

A little paranormal twist thrown in for good measure and you have yourself a pretty awesome little story.

 

I would certainly recommend this one.

My Parents Think I'm Sleeping
My Parents Think I'm Sleeping - Jack Prelutsky,Yossi Abolafia

N/A

1-5

This book is about a young boy who stays awake after his parents go to bed.  He goes on adventures in his house.  This book is poetry based.  It does not always rhyme, but it would be a good way to introduce poetry.  I would use this book to teach that poetry does not always have to rhyme completely.  I would also allow my students to write a free-verse poem at the end and hang them in the hallway.

5 Stars

The Little Engine That Could
The Little Engine That Could - Watty Piper,Doris Hauman,George Hauman

Lexile Level: 680L

 

This story is about a train carrying supplies for children but it breaks down and can't get the goods to the children. The train asks several trains that pass by for help, but they all turn the train down. Eventually a little engine helps but she thinks she is not strong enough to pull the train, because she has never done anything like this before. She chants "I think I can, I think I can," and she succeeds helping the train.

This would be a good book to read to all students who are having a hard time or struggling with school or life in general. Children need to hear that they are able to succeed, no matter what the situation is.

And To Think I Saw It On Mulberry Street!
And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street - Dr. Seuss

This is an adorable book! It is a classical Dr. Seuss book that shows and encourages imagination and creativity! It can be used as a fun read aloud for 1st-4th grade! After reading this fun Dr. Seuss book, the students can get out a draw what they would have seen on Mulberry Street! The students could also write a paragraph or narrative story about what they would have seen on Mulberry Street! This book allows for a lot of creativity for both teachers and students!

(This would be a fun activity for Dr. Seuss Week!)
