This first nations fantasy has been one of the books I've been wanting to read since last week. I enjoyed this transition into a fantasy world that was made believable and was described so vividly.
This book is on our state book award list and I've needed to read it to have a good way to book talk it. It parallels with The Barren Grounds too, so it was a busy week for fantasies for me. I really appreciated the short chapters in this book.
A departure from children's literature on this one. I'm reading this for a book club with former co-working friends. I read it's prequel The Bean Trees a few weeks ago, so I'm ready for some light reading.

Books I Read Last Week
Y'all!! The way Paulsen writes about his own childhood without ever identfying himself or exuding the sense of a rightly earned pity is astounding. I still find myself heartbroken for this boy, even knowing the successes that came his way. I read through a combination of audiobook and text. Both formats were good.
If you are looking for a picture book about seasons this should be added to your go-to list. A quick engaging read aloud. My kindergarten group and myself enjoyed this fun read.
What I'm Currently Reading
I just started this book on Sunday. I have seen it popping up on my twitter feed from multiple people. I'm excited to get into this story this week.
What I Will Read
I'm not sure what I'm going to be reading next. I've got a busy week ahead with trainings and three sections of an inquiry unit with 3rd grade.
