Summer Review

As summer is winding down, so is all of our extra time for reading. While the Hart family has had a pretty active summer, with many trips to the beach and camp, we have also done a lot of reading. For me personally, summer is a time to read all of the adult books that I may not have time to read during the school year. This summer, I participated in the Topsham Public Library's Adult Summer Reading Program, and have read or listened to 28 books so far~ and I hope to finish at least two more before school starts! Both of the Hart kids (Wesley and Esther) also participated in the TPL reading program, and they rocked it! Wesley has discovered a love for Diary of a Wimpy Kid (see him reading it at camp one morning), and Esther has rediscovered the classic book, The Carrot Seed by Ruth Krauss.  She will read it over and over, using a mean voice for that pesky older brother (hmmm... I wonder who she is imitating).


While I've focused mostly on books for adults, I did read some great books that I think my BCS friends would love:

Gertie's Leap to Greatness by Kate Beasley,

Sunny Side Up by Jennifer Holm and Matthew Holm,

Raymie Nightingale by Kate DiCamillo,

Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy by Gary D. Schmidt,

(Wesley and I listened to the audiobook of Lizzie Bright and we really enjoyed it. Our relatives are from Malaga Island, so it was neat to have that connection.)

and finally, Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate.

I can't wait to hear what fabulous books you've enjoyed over the summer! Please fill out your reading passports, and be sure to pop in and share your favorites with me when school starts. You can also share in the comments (if your parents allow!).  I will be looking for volunteers to write a review each week!
