The above linked article tells about one of my favorite books growing up being made into a movie. The only thing that disappointed me about this article was that it doesn’t say when the movie will be made. I can’t wait!
Meg Cabot has dusted off Princess Mia to get blog fodder in the above linked article. Princess Mia always has a lot to say, and I miss that the series is completed. I get a chance to catch up with her in the author’s blog, though. How fun!
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I enjoyed this book, but not as much as the first in the series. The characters were great, but if you weren’t familiar with the first book, you wouldn’t know it. I felt that Catriona was a lot more scattered in this book than she was in the previous one.
I am curious to know what happens in the next book. I plan on reading it soon.
This book tells about how Ezra Jack Keats came up with his main character, Peter, and the significance of Peter in the time that the books were written.
It is more of a biography in poem form than anything, and would pretty much only interest those who knew a little about the author and his works. I found it very interesting, though.
I loved this book. It told about a lot of black entertainers and artists that were important in the 1920’s. The giants. I especially enjoyed th the part in the back of the book that told a little more about each of the great artists of the time. There was a part about books for further reading. Unfortunately, most of them are not available at the library.
The illustrations were great and the story was fun.
This was written clearly and in a way that children can understand. It tells about a very important time in United States history. It discusses segregation in a factual way that makes it clear while things were difficult for these women.
I enjoyed the book, but I do think it is written for older children to read to themselves.
