Hi everyone, hope you enjoyed Scarlet Ibis as much as I did. Ever since reading it I have been avidly looking for other reads about autistic kids. I have had the experience of meeting a few in my time but didn’t get a proper chance to get to know them. These reads feature a main character who has autism and details their adventures!! Hope you enjoy reading these books!!Continue reading “Four more autism tales for you”
Hello everyone, this first review for September comes from a title that moved me to tears at every page. The relationship between the young siblings is one that will always stay with me. The younger sibling is autistic in this story, and on reading it I gained more insight into the condition. I hope this title moves you the way it did me.
Hello all to the spring month of September!
This month’s posts feature books about young heroes. Not your typical comic book superheroes or those who save the world from mythical monsters or evil secret societies. These are young kids who have overcome some sort of illness, medical condition, or are living with a form of disability. I chose this topic for an extremely personal reason this month.Continue reading “Special heroes this September”
Hi everyone, I hope you found The Best Man as fascinating as I did. For this extra post I’ve included a few similar stories I had read and collected into my notebooks. These all feature young tweens who identify as either gay or transgender, not just a familiar adult or teacher. As my reading these days expand into different genres I can’t help but notice that there is a rise in LGBTIQ representation within tween and teen fiction. I know some people might find it difficult, but to me these stories are exceptionally well written. So, why not have a go and see what you can learn with these first few titles.
Hi all, this next book review is by far one of the best stories I have read!! I don’t give this accolade to every book I read, but this one impacted me profoundly in ways I had never imagined it would. So, have a read and let me know if you agree or not.
Hello all, for this second week I will be reviewing two delightful books I found on our shelves. One of the reasons I enjoyed these were because of their gorgeous covers, and the other was the fantastical story each had!! If you enjoy fantasy mixed with some history, then these are for you!!Continue reading “Greenglass House books by Kate Milford”
Hi everyone, welcome to this first post for August! The title I selected for this week I read a few years ago but the simple story and quirky characters still remain in my memories. This was one of the first few family stories that I truly enjoyed and haven’t found a similar story to match the qualities of this book! So, why not give this title a try!!
