The Shadow Children Series

Margaret Peterson Haddix promises to keep you on the edge of your seat with the Shadow Children Series. Among the Hidden, the first book in the series, has been an exciting first read-aloud for our classroom. Stay tuned for upcoming reviews from our avid classroom listeners!

VOTE! June and Moon!

The Kid Who Ran for President is the perfect book for our community read aloud. I'm so excited this book was chosen. It is the perfect way to discuss the upcoming election and Dan Gutman really knows how to make me laugh!! Whether it is 12 year old Judson Moon, first babe Chelsea Daniels, campaign manager Lane Brainard or running mate June Syers, the characterization in this book is spectacular! Every middle-schooler can probably relate to someone in this book. Will the Lemonade Party make it to the White House!? Stay tuned to find out!!!
