Hello on this Monday morning. I was looking through the blog and reading recent comments and thought that, since it takes a few weeks from the time books are posted until the reviews are published on the site, I'd remind you to take a look at a few titles that are getting some terrific response:
Seems that Carolyn MacCullough is brewing some magic with her young adult novel ONCE A WITCH. Be sure to hear what teachers and librarians are saying about it. And lots of 5 out of 5 ratings for 14 COWS FOR AMERICA, the story of a Kenyan village's gift to America following 9/11. Plus terrific response, though still early, for The Secret Life of Walter Anderson and Cora Cooks Pancit, the latter posted just last week.
What's being served at the Picnic Basket in the next week? A collection of charming short animal stories about friendship and memories that's been likened to Winnie-the-Pooh and a picture book full of rhymes to get kids moving and dancing. Stay tuned.
