What is your favorite part?

My favorite part was when Erin let him out of his locker and she is so surprised to see him in there.

Anything in the book that parents should know about?

Yes.  There is a burglary and bullys.

Why do you think other kids should read this book?

It is really funny and it has these weird, handwritten raps(it is a cool song).

BK’s Book-Marks – Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library

I recently read Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein.  Here are the answers to Mom’s four questions.

What is the book about?

There is a new library opening and a contest is announced that 12 kids will be selected to explore the library before it opens on an overnight retreat. The way to be selected is to write an essay about what they are looking forward to seeing at the library. The kids are chosen, they go to the library, play games and then they go to sleep. When they wake up and try to leave, they find the door locked. Can they escape? Read Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s library to find out!

What is your favorite part?

My favorite part was when Mr. Lemoncello said he did not know how to escape. He said the head librarian designed the game as his birthday present.

Anything in the book that parents should know about?

There are a lot of bad words like stupid and some of the kids lie. That is what you should know.

Why do you think other kids should read this book?

The riddles in it keep people’s attention. There are different challenges and puzzles that the kids have to solve and they talk about other books that kids read like Harry Potter.

My Day to Read at School

I have something to share with you.

The first day of school is almost here and the emails will start coming from the room parents.  My Favorite day of school is when I am signed up to read to my daughter’s class.  I try to choose books that allows me to interact with the class and ask questions to the other kids.  Add these two to your list for when the sign up sheet gets sent out to your class!

Kid App: Tic Tac Toe Phonics

I have something to share with you.

I shared recently a new app we downloaded for my daughter called Sushi Monster. I needed a bunch of apps to download for a recent flight and these were all teacher recommended.  In addition to math apps, she recommended a few others, one of them Tic Tac Toe Phonics.

Tic Tac Toe is from Lakeshore and teaches vowel sounds, syllables and more all through a fast paced game of Tic Tac Toe.  Choose a team, choose a square, answer the question and if you get it right, you get an “x” or “o”.

My Daughter’s thoughts – on a scale of 1 – 10, she gave it a 10 for awesome!  it’s super fun because it is tic tac toe and it’s free(Mom’s two cents!)
