The Slice of Life Story Challenge
I've been slowly reorganizing my classroom library. As I was leveling and labeling books, I slowly started creating a stack of books on the side.
This book. Oh, this is a good one. That book.
I remember loving them as a child, but why? What made it so special? Why did I want my students to read it? I could not answer any of these questions.
Hopefully, after this week my memory will be awakened by some of these favorites that traveled with me on my break.
Books are like old friends. It's important to keep in touch and visit every now and again.
A short stack of favorite books to revisit: The Giver; Tuck Everlasting; Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry; Sounder; The Cricket in Times Square; Walk Two Moons, Lily's Crossing; From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler; Where the Red Fern Grows; Seedfolks; Number the Stars; Wringer; and Because of Winn-Dixie.
