I had no idea what to expect from Palacio’s Pony. Her name is so tied to the Wonder books, and I was worried that I would be disappointed. I could not have been more wrong.

Pony blew me away. It is one of the best 2021 books that I have read, and I can’t stop thinking about the characters, the story, and of course, Mittenwool. You are going to LOVE Mittenwool.

I fully expect to see this one on dozens of state award lists, and in the mix when the Newbery committee meets to discuss the most distinguished books of the year. Be sure to pre-order this one so that you can read it as soon as it drops this fall.

So excited to add this book to our middle school library! I recently won it in the Bee’s Bookshelf Bloom giveaway from the Scripps National Spelling Bee and Random House Children’s Books. 🐝📚❤️
Thank you for the Netgallery reading of The Mysterious Disappearance of Aidan S. by Levithan. Here is my review:
for educators!
Thanks for the advance copy of One-Third Nerd! I can’t wait to read it and add it to my classroom library!
If you are a book lover you have to read this book!!! ​Interest Level: 3-6 What if someone told you what you could and couldn't read? Would that be fair?What if you got in major trouble for even having a book that was not endorsed by the school? Would that be fair either? The answer to both of those questions is NO! Well, this is exactly what is happening to June Harper. When she checks out a book from her school library that her parents deem inappropriate, it starts a snowball effect of bad things. First, an amazing librarian is put on administrative leave; second, a majority of library books were hauled out of the school library; and third, kids are getting suspended for even having an unapproved book in their possession. When June's parents take away ALL of her person books, she is left with only one book that she is forced to hide. Then June comes across a a small house on top of a wooden post that says it is a Little Free Library. June is ecstatic when she finds a book in there. Little does she know that when she takes that book (and many more) that she will break all the rules to defend the rite to read. Not only is she dealing with all of this, she is also dealing with middle school problems like best friends and boys. Will Ms. Bradshaw, the school librarian, get her job back? Will June get her first boyfriend, even at the expense of her best friend? Most importantly, will June be able to make a difference with her parents, the school system, and the PTSA? Will books still be banned or will June and all of the other students be able to read what they want? This is a must read!! I have mentioned several times in my blogs that I am a fairly slow reader. Normally it would take me several days to read a 275 page book. Not this book!! I read this book in just a few hours. Once I started I could not put it down. I don't know if it's because it's such a fantastic book or if it's because this subject is a subject that I am passionate about. Kids should have the right to read what they want and just because you and I may not like a book does not give us the right to judge it. I was so proud of June and how she took a stand for the right to read even when it went against her "good girl" persona. If you are a book lover this book is a must read!!

Interest Level: 3-6 Imagine that your grandfather is in the body of a fourteen-year-old boy and goes to the same middle school as you do. How would you react? Well, Ellie actually loves spending time with her grandfather. And them being in the same school is a bonus when they get to work together on the county science fair project. In The Fourteenth Goldfish Ellie's grandfather, Melvin, discovered how to reverse time and become a teenager again. In The Third Mushroom, they stumble upon a way to grow missing body parts. Will this win them the science fair? Will Melvin stay in a teenage body forever? And what about middle school life? Can Ellie navigate friends, boyfriends, and a grandfather all at the same time? Read this fun and enjoyable book from Jennifer L. Holm!

Interest Level: 3-6 What would you do if you were given a marionette doll and one day you touched her strings and you heard her thoughts? How freaked out would you be? Penny has spent so many years on the shelf in the museum watching all that goes on. Chance works in the museum helping Fortunato, an elderly man who inherited the museum from the cabinetmaker who was his teacher. When Fortunato is forced to sell the museum he gives Chance the life-sized marionette doll, Penny. When Chance touches Penny's strings they are able to communicate through their minds. What they don't know is an evil man is watching them and creates an opportunity for Chance and Penny to swap places. Penny is so excited to be in a human body, but not at the expense of Chance's soul. As Penny is trying to find a way to swap them back, Chance is stolen and now Penny doesn't know what to do. Chance's sister, Constance, steps in and is determined to save her brother. What she doesn't expect is to become friends with Penny. Will Penny and Constance be able to find Chance and swap back? Will Penny decide that she wants to keep the human body and leave Chance frozen in the wooden body? What about the evil man? Will he do whatever it takes to keep his marionette, even if it means death? This is a must read that you will not be able to put down until the end.

Interest Level: 5-8 Imagine that you live in a place where you have to hide all of the time because you are being hunted? How would it feel to have to sneak around and hide all of the time? This is exactly Rook and Drift's life. They live in a place called Talhaven where magic used to abound. Then one day without any warning there was a great explosion in the doorway between Vora and Talhaven that causes the magic to die, or what magic is left is dangerous. Everyone who is left in Talhaven that has magic is now being sought after to be put in prison, or even worse, some just disappear. Drift and Rook are best friends. Drift can cause great winds with her magic and Rook can create magical doors to travel anywhere. Rook is always trying to create a door back home to Vora so that they can live in peace. One day when Rook has created a door a red fox jumps through and threatens everything they have ever known. Is the red fox an enemy come to harm them, or is the red fox the answer they have been looking for? Will Rook ever make the door to get them back home, or will Rook find out that home may be something different all together? Read this fast-paced, action packed, edge of your seat adventure to find out. This type of fantasy book is not usually my type of book but I received it from a publisher to review, so I did. Boy was I wrong! This book grabbed me from the beginning and wouldn't let go until I finished it. It was absolutely fantastic and Jaleigh Johnson now has a new fan! Do not miss this book!!
