Mystery Reader: This book just ate my dog!

Are you mystery reader this week in your child’s school?  In our blog column “Mystery Reader Picks” we would like to offer you book suggestions for your school visit.  Our librarians recommend favorite read aloud choices for kindergarten through 3rd grade.  Check back every other week for a new title and stop by or give us a call for many more selections.    

Mystery Reader Picks:

book just ate dogThis book just ate my dog! by Richard Byrne

K - 2nd 

Do you devour books?  Turnabout is fair play.  This book eats everything in sight starting with Bella's dog.  Children will be particularly delighted by the ultimate resolution which requires physically shaking and turning the book to release Bella's dog and all the others digested by the book.

Caroline recommends The Anybodies because the author took the rules of writing and turned them upside down.  For older readers The Divergent Series is tops on her list.
