What the Moon Said
Sophia Estrada, a 4th grader in Mrs. Fletcher’s room, likes the book What the Moon Said by Gayle Rosengren. The main character, Ester, has a mom who is really superstitious. Sophia finds that interesting and finds that it contributes a great deal to the plot of the story. Esther and her family move to a farm until she starts having problems with her appendix, which meant that she has to move back to Chicago. Sophia highly recommends this book! Thank you, Sophia, for your input and for being such a wonderful Library student!

However, Hollis finds herself longing for her previous foster family. Read this book, and you quickly fall in love with Hollis and her feelings of fear and regret and her quest to find a forever home."

One of Mrs. Bullard's favorite books is Number the Stars by Lois Lowry. The setting is in Copenhagen in 1943, and friendship is a prevalent theme in the book. It is a story about the Danish Resistance and their plan to smuggle the entire Jewish population of Denmark--nearly 7,000 people--across the sea to Sweden.
