Review: Firefly Hollow

Firefly Hollow Firefly Hollow by Alison McGhee
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book was a little too sweet for me, but I did like the fact that each of the animal characters had to adjust their expectations and goals.

Review: From Anna

From Anna From Anna by Jean Little
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book, with its realistic description of the effects of a disability - in this case poor/limited eyesight. Nice family dynamics.

Review: Nooks & Crannies

Nooks & Crannies Nooks & Crannies by Jessica Lawson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am not sure why I didn't expect that much of this book - maybe because I just saw it in the library and hadn't heard anyone talk about it. But I ended up liking it quite a bit. Yes, some of the characterizations are a tiny bit over done, but that is almost necessary in order to follow the clues in this mystery. I think this would make a fun read-aloud for 4th or 5th graders. There is a lot they could speculate about in terms of what is going on. Enjoyable.
