What I'm Reading This Week

I'm so excited to be back at school this week. I can't say I really did a lot of reading over the winter break. At least, not as muc has I had hoped to. It's good to be back to the routine of swim practices/reading at the pool!

This week I am re-reading The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo since we are reading it for our Grade 3 book club. I need to get the quizzes ready for Edmodo and I am enjoying making a bit of a study of the book. Seems to me there is some more significant symbolism in this book that I'm not quite understanding just yet.

I also plan to read A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah. I'm a little nervous about reading it as it seems like it might be a little too real and graphic for me. I am reading it along with some colleagues and am fascinated with the story. I hope I have the stomach for it!

And, if all goes well, I am going to try to squeeze Counting by 7's in too. I've heard so much about it. I really want to read it!

  1. I also started to read "A Long Way Gone". I too was a little nervous about starting it, but am glad I did! Yes, it's graphic, but it's also moving.
