Two books I enjoyed reading this weekend are:
I loved reading Gilbert Goldfish Wants a Pet by Kelly DiPucchio! It is a perfect companion text to read along with Not Norman: A Goldfish Story by Kelly Bennett, which I also love and read during our character unit to model and discuss character change in texts. I also envision many ways I can use it as a mentor text in writing workshop. I look forward to reading this text aloud to my students soon!

I have read and enjoyed the Lemonade War series by Jacqueline Davies so I was excited to read the third book in the series, The Bell Bandit, this weekend. I usually tend to like the first book in a series better than all the rest, but not in this case. I actually like this book better than the first two. I know students will love reading it and trying to solve the mystery of the missing bell right along with the characters. This book is more of a mystery adventure and leaves the reader in a bit of suspense till the end. Enjoy!
Happy Reading! :)
