this is our house
This Is Our House - Hyewon Yum

this is our house is a story of a house that has seen three generations of one family. It is a sweet story that shows how similar parents' and children's experiences are.

This book received a score of 3.3 on the Flesch-Kincaid reading scale, making it a good book for third grade or above. This would be a good book to use to explain the similarities between generations.

The Very Hungary Caterpillar
The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Eric Carle

This book is so great for students learning about numbers and sequential order. While the new caterpillar is going through this stage of his life, he is quite hungry; eating everything he can find. As the book goes on, the caterpillar eats more, and more, and more food...until he gets in his cocoon and turns into a butterfly. I would say the intended audience for this book would be K-2. For the younger grades, I would focus more on the number learning this book has to offer, while for 2nd grade I would focus more on the sequential ordering (first, second, third, then, last). An activity I would use this book for in the classroom is have the students retell the story in sequential order using picture cards representing what the caterpillar ate. This would get students back into the text and get students to use their application/relation skills to tell the story using cards instead of words, but also in the correct order.

It Happened One Autumn by Lisa Kleypas
It Happened One Autumn - Lisa Kleypas

Wallflowers #2

 

Looooved it! Such a good read. Better than the first book! I highly recommend it!

 

I gotta read book 4 right away. It Happened One Autumn ends with a cliffhanger which sets up the next romance for the series. I hope St. Vincent redeems himself in the next book, because

kidnapping Lilian to force her to marry him was a horrible thing to do.

(spoiler show)

I still like him though. He's definitely an interesting character, and I'm excited to see how his relationship with Evie unfolds.

 

It Happened One Autumn can be read by itself, but I think if you read the first Wallflower book and the stand alone novel called Again the Magic you get a better feel of Marcus and his background. Again the Magic covers his sisters and you get to see the brotherly side of him.
