On the up side I did get a chance to go book shopping and included in my purchases were the first four books in The Time Warp Trio by Jon Scieszka. This week I tackled the first book, Knights of the Kitchen Table and I loved it! Now if you remember I'm not a big dragon, knight, castle, type book reader; however, this book may be an exception. It was a terrific book about three friends and the adventure they go on after opening a magic book, The Book, that was given to Joe by his uncle Joe on his birthday. You may be thinking, hmm, this sounds familiar - time traveling because of a magic book are you sure it wasn't another book in The Magic Tree House series by Mary Pope Osbourne? Yes, even though the general idea is very similar the book is still a great read. I can't wait to read the next three books in the series and pick up as many more as I can. I think that this will be the perfect addition to my classroom library! I already have a handful of readers to recommend this book to in the fall!!!
***Next week I am hoping to review The Fake Mustache and The One and Only Ivan. Both of these are SSYRA books and recent additions to my home-thank you public library :) So now don't forget to check out Andrea's Reading toward the Stars and Amanda's The Teaching Thief for other great book suggestions!
