September - Sharon Creech

Since we've had so many new members over the years, we've decided to do a few throw backs and redo a couple of our favorite previous topics. The first repeat will be a Sharon Creech author study, because if you haven't read her books, you must! And if you have read them, you know you can't wait to read them again. Since we're all having a busy summer, we only picked a few:

Walk Two Moons

Love That Dog

Chasing Redbird

If you finish those and want to read more there's quite a long list, Absolutley Normal Chaos, Bloomability, Heartbeat, The Wanderer, Ruby Holler, Replay, Granny Torelli Makes Soup, Pleasing the Ghost, and The Castle Corna is scheduled to be released October 1st!

Sharon Creech also has a few picture books: Fine, Fine School; Who's That Baby, and Fishing in the Air

Who decides which books get press (Harry Potter) and which get censored? After all, censorship is becoming America's favorite past-time. The US gov't (and their corporate friends), already detain protesters, ban books like "America Deceived" from Amazon and Wikipedia, shut down Imus and fire 21-year tenured, BYU physics professor Steven Jones because he proved explosives, thermite in particular, took down the WTC buildings. Free Speech forever (especially for books).

America Deceived (Book)

Great site. You have excellent taste in your selections. We loved Chasing Redbird.

My daughter and I will be picking up the Becoming Naomi and The Queen of Attolia.

I also wanted to suggues a FANTASTIC new book series my daughter and I stumbled apon at an outdoor event in WI.

It's called Gaia Girls. It's a seven book series and WE LOVE IT!! Love it! The first two books are out.

We are very connected to the earth as farmers and we love the mix of fantasy and ECO issues in a fantastic, CAN'T PUT THEM DOWN stories.

Please check out Gaia Girls.
