I liked this book because I love to bake and it inspired me…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️A lonely Scottish woman meets a quirky, kind man and finds friendship and healing. Both snarky and sad, I couldn’t help but fall in love with both Eleanor and Raymond. Endearing read that I thoroughly enjoyed.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️In a nutshell, if you want students to become readers, let them read. Model your own love of reading. Connect to your kids by sharing your favorite books and how they have impacted your life. Miller brings humor and passion to this plea for independent reading. Excellent resource for librarians and teachers who believe in the power of personal choice and independent reading time.

Just finished Andy Weir’s latest. The moon is the focus this time and a plot by a cartel to overtake the aluminum supply. A local petty smuggler teams up with an unlikely crew to protect Artemis from being overrun by criminals. Entertaining but not nearly as good as The Martian. 3.5/5 stars.

Kapow! Wise words from @gustafsonbrad at his booktalking session @scholasticinc #readingsummit
