*Today was a BIG day in my fourth grade classroom. We had our first "Breakfast with Books" book club.
*This book club has been one of the greatest aspects of my teaching career.
*I chose this novel for many reasons. It is an excellent story and such fun for kids to read. The book is the first of a series of four. I think this because it leads children to read more books.
*The author actually lives right here in Minneapolis and has been gracious enough to visit my classroom the last several years.
*This morning we enjoyed some breakfast treats, talked about the story, and ask Erin Soderberg all of our questions about the characters, the plot, and of course the "Quirks."
*There is nothing better than bringing a group of kids together for a "real" book club experience and have the author join us in person.
