Shared Experiences from 2012
We collected rocks and shells in Lake Michigan and polished them. We glued some of them together to make turtles and butterflies.
After the Golden Age by Carrie Vaughn — Celia West is the daughter of Commerce City's two most well-known superheroes. Unfortunately, she has no superpowers. Living in the shadow of her parents, Celia has to discover her own talents. There was something a little strange about reading this story in traditional format instead of watching it as an action movie or reading it as a graphic novel. I had a great time trying to pinpoint the villian, who was someone relatively obvious, but who then encouraged second-guessing as well. A fun read
El gran libro de mi mundo by con ilustraciones de Kali Stileman ; [traducción, Equipo Ediciones B] — This book is so cute. The illustrations are bright and cheerful. It's a great book for young kids who want to learn new Spanish words.
