It's Monday, What Are You Reading?



Happy Monday! Here at TWR, we are soaking up every last bit of summer by reading as much as we can. We are beginning to think about our classrooms though and thinking about getting in there soon, are you? I know I personally like to have things done a little sooner than necessary because it makes those days right before school starts a little less hectic so spending time in my classroom unpaid is worth it for my mental health later!

I just finished Wishtree by Katherine Applegate and it met ALL the hype it’s been getting. I’ll be honest, this book is getting A LOT of buzz this year so I was nervous it wouldn’t meet those high expectations I had formed but, let me tell you, IT DID! I’ve always liked trees, but now I think I have an even bigger appreciation and love for them. Read it. You will not regret it!


What have you been reading and loving lately? What are you reading right now? We love to know what our readers are enjoying so let us know in the comments!

  1. I enjoyed Wishtree, but I didn't love it. I think moving up to teaching 7th grade from 3rd has made me wish for a little more in some books. I think 4th/5th graders will love it, but it seemed too straight-forward and predictable for older readers.

  3. I just read Miss Spitfire, a book about Annie Sullivan, Helen Keller's teacher. It surprised me with it's nuanced picture of Annie, who definitely wasn't some saintly angel sent from above :-)
