Children's Literacy Round-Up: May 29
Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life: Wendy Mass

May 2007 Reading List

May was a disappointly light month for books read, and even worse in terms of writing reviews of the books. Too much work, too much travel, just not enough time for books. This makes me very sad. But hopefully June will be better... And I do have a stack of recent reads that I loved that I intend to review soon. I especially enjoyed Dairy Queen.
