A book about puppets. Not your usual read. I didn't really think about what I was going to get myself into with this book. I only really remembered reading the summary and coming away with puppets and a witc... " Read more of this review »

Josiah liked that Sweet's Family Bookshelves wants to read: I'm looking for cute and fun second grade books for a girl. She is really into ballet and horses. Things like Arthur also. I think we have read almost every Arthur book our library has and quite a few I've ordered. Thanks! Recommend a book to Sweet's »

Pouch! by David Ezra Stein

The safest place in the world is Momma's pouch. I think everyone's natural instinct is to hop back to the pouch and curl up in safety inside when we feel scared or threatened, to return to a place we've known as safe since day one of our existence....more

“Sometimes you think you know more than you really do—people, events, things that are true and things that are not. Sometimes you think you know yourself. But then, surprise, it is someone else who shows you what is really there, like the truth a photograph shows.”
Patricia MacLachlan, White Fur Flying

Margarita Engle
“What more do I need?
I don't know how my book
will end.

All I know is that love
is not the modern invention
of rebellious young girls.

Love is ancient.
A legend.
The truth.”
Margarita Engle, The Lightning Dreamer: Cuba's Greatest Abolitionist

Neal Shusterman
“(O)ne cannot let the event's of one's past murder one's future.”
Neal Shusterman, UnSouled

Adam Gidwitz
“But beware...For we go out into the wide, wild world, looking to change, looking to grow, looking for wisdom. But wisdom is hard to come by, and once achieved, it is very easily lost. Especially when one is leaving the wide, wild world—and returning to the place you once fled.”
Adam Gidwitz, In a Glass Grimmly

Margarita Engle
“I feel at home, choosing to live
inside my own imagination,
and natural,
yet I also long to be honest
about my desire
to love
and be loved.

Am I an unearthly creature,
part vampire, part werewolf?

Or perhaps...
poetry is my beastly mind's
only curse.”
Margarita Engle, The Lightning Dreamer: Cuba's Greatest Abolitionist
