The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
The Invention of Hugo Cabret

dider_1, January 28, 2009

Being a K-8 librarian I am exposed to my different areas of childrens books. This books stands out from them all. The way Selnick's illustrations carry on the story to the way fact is mixed with fiction makes this a book that is very hard to put down. I read it with the 3rd to 8th grade students at my schoool and it even captured my most reluctant readers, across that wide age range. I would recommend anyone at any age to get lost in Paris with Hugo.

My husband and I really enjoy this book and have made many of the recipes together. The recipes are fantastic and the differences in how each Julia and Jacques do things part of the charm of this book. This is a must check out if you enjoy food and it's preparation!

The Last Straw (Diary of a Wimpy Kid #3) by Jeff Kinney
The Last Straw (Diary of a Wimpy Kid #3)

I can only say that I am a K-8 librarian that has been patiently waiting for it, while my students have madly been asking "Do you have Last Straw yet?". We can't wait to get it. Based on the first two books I do not think we will be disappointed.
