Miss Perry is reading...
See below for my recommendations. I LOVE to read and there really isn't enough hours in the day for me to ever get through all the books in my 'to be read' pile! I love all types of books and spend lots of time searching for new children's books to share in class. I especially love picture books for older readers - ones with amazing images and messages that make you really think! I will be sharing some of my favourites in class over the next few weeks.
Here are few of my current favourites for you to check out...
Where Once We Stood:
Stories of the Apollo Astronauts who walked on the Moon.
(by Christopher Riley & Martin Impey)
This is such an outstanding phenomenal book! I would recommend it to everyone - adults and children alike. I will be using this book this term to link to our art work in class, as the art work in the book is just so amazing and inspiring. I will be reading parts of it to the children too. I recently started reading it myself and have been totally hooked, it is so interesting. There are great facts, amazing information and it really makes you wonder what it must have been like to walk up there on the moon. We have some budding Space enthusiasts in our class - I wonder if any of them will be next to step foot on another world?
Have a look at these reviews!
Take a look below for some further images from the book.
The Nowhere Emporium (by Ross Mackenzie)
Read this book! I couldn't put it down and raved to everyone about it! Even though it is a children's book!!! Such mystery and magic awaits, it really transports you to a world of imagination
The Nowhere Emporium is open for business...bring your imagination.
The mysterious shop from nowhere can appear at any time, in any city.
Its magical labyrinth of rooms contains wonders beyond belief.
But to enter you must pay a price.
After the Fall (Dan Santat)
A picture book with an important message of hope and survival. It is so engaging with wonderful images too.
