Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

Fall Books for Kids

I loved having an assignment from the Books Editor at the Christian Science Monitor. She sent me a stack of great new books. She tied them together around the theme of Friendship. I got to write just enough to entice readers to buy or check them out from the library.

I guess I have to confess that my favorite among the group was HOUND DOG TRUE.
 How I love that book! The wisdom, the characters, the writing. So good.

Click here for the list.

All are terrific, for different reasons.

Anybody out there with a great new fall book to recommend?

I don't know if these are Fall releases because I am slow to read my pile of books but I have recently read and LOVED:

The Candymakers by Wendy Mass
Cosmic by Cottrell Boyce
and especially...
How to Rock Braces and Glasses by Meg Haston. LOVED this one about how a Queen Bee bully turns into an outcast (and back again).
