What's New? Stacking the Shelves
Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Hop on over there to ogle what other bloggers got this week.
I attended a Scholastic Reading Summit in the Washington D.C. area on Tuesday. I went to one two years ago in the Boston area and really enjoyed it so I thought I'd make a little trip to DC not realizing that Herndon, VA is not all that close and convenient to DC. Doable, but I got a late start on Monday and didn't get to see anything once I got there. But l took the long way home and hit three Civil War battle fields.
I highly recommend attending one of these Summits if they are in your area. As conferences go, it is not expensive and you get so much. Plus, there's a Scholastic Book Fair too!
Each attendee got a cool messenger bag filled with some conference material and these books:
Dog Man by Dav Pilkey.
Riding Chance by Christine Kendall.
Pink is for Blobfish by Jess Keating.
The Reading Zone by Nancie Atwell & Anne Atwell Merkel.
I already have the first three books in my library and have read two of the three. I may just give these books away to some new teachers in my building. I have not read The Reading Zone and am behind in my professional reading.
I also received Groovy Joe: Ice Cream and Dinosaurs by Erc Litwin for signing up for.., hm, you know? I can't remember.
Then, of course, I bought from the fair. I showed great restraint and resisted buying tons. Here's what I couldn't resist:
Every Child a Super Reader by Pam Allyne & Ernest Morrell.
The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors by Drew Daywalt. Illustrated by Adam Rex.
Shark Lady: the true story of how Eugenie Clark became the ocean's most fearless scientist by Jess Keating.
Abraham by Frank Keating.
Olinguito, from A to Z!/ ¡Olinguito, de la A a la Z! Unveiling the Cloud Forest by Lulu Delacre.
Good Dog by Nicola Jane Swinney
That's what's new with me. What's new with you?
