It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 8/8/16

8 Aug

This week I read a couple nonfiction stories – I love what authors are doing with informational text for middle grade and young adult readers.  It’s so interesting and I truly believe that if they could incorporate some of these stories into the curriculum, it may excite more students to learn about history.

This week I read The Plot to Kill Hitler: Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Spy, Unlikely Hero by Patricia McCormick about the possibility of a coup by Germans unhappy with Hitler in power and A Storm Too Soon: A Remarkable True Survival Story in 80 Foot Seas by Michael J. Tougias a young reader’s edition of a Coast Guard rescue of three men in the throes of a storm that was more than a little unexpected.

I also finally got to dive into Seraphina and the Twisted Staff and will most likely finish it tonight. And then it’s on to as many leadership books as I can read over the course of the next month or so as I transition into my new position as Library Director!!!!
