It’s Monday, What are You Reading?

Mon Reading Button PB to YA

Recently, a student held a book to her chest and asked if I had any more books by Jo Knowles. My answer was no, and this girl walked away sad. I knew I needed to read the one Knowles’ book I had in my classroom library.

See You at Harry’s is not what I expected. It is more about unconditional love than anything, and it has left an indelible impression on my heart. 12384984

I have added Jo Knowles’ other books to my classroom shelves. Her descriptions are vivid, and her characters are real.

So, this Monday, and this week, I am having a Jo Knowles’ bookfest. My student, Raquel, can have them when I’m done!

    I loved Jumping Off Swings. I loved See You at Harry’s even more. I wrote a review of it on my blog, but it’s one of those books that’s hard to write about…Beautiful book!
