I just read a great book called The Year of the Book by Andrea Cheng. If you’re look for a cool read, check it out!
This book is all about a girl named Anna, who wants nothing more than to fit in with the other kids in her class. Everyday, Anna does her best to blend in when she’s at school. When she gets home, she reads tons and tons of books. Anna reads so much, she starts to think that books are her true friend!
Will this fourth grader see that the kids in her class actually like that she’s different? Can she let herself become friends with them? You’ll have to pick up this book to find out!
Not only does this novel have important lessons about friendship and learning to be yourself, there are fun activities tucked inside too! There are instructions on how to fold a won-ton (a won ton is a kind of yummy Chinese food), how to write Chinese letters and more!
If you do read this book, I hope you enjoy it!
Talk to you soon,
