Weeks, Sarah. CATFISH KATE AND THE SWEET SWAMP BAND New York : Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 2009 IL K-3, RL 1.9 ISBN 141694026X Catfish and her friends are having a great time playing and singing. I guess they are a bit loud but it is ok. Until the boys show up. They want the girls to quiet down. The boys are trying to read. They can't do that with all this noise going on. But don't the girls also have a right to do what they want to? Is there anyway that both the boys and the girls can be happy?
It has been quite some time since I did my podcast. Now that winter semester is over and I have a bit of breathing room, it is time to get my act together.
Zoehfeld, Kathleen Weidner. GHOST MYSTERIES : UNRAVELING THE WORLD'S MOST MYSTERIOUS HAUNTINGS New York : Aladdin, 2009 IL 3-6, RL 5.8 ISBN 1416964487 I love watching the show Ghost Hunters. The crew travels to places that have been reported as haunted and they try to debunk the claims. Usually, they do. Sometimes they are just not able to come up with a plausible explanation for what they experience. In this book, you will learn about the history of ghosts in literature, films and television. Do you believe?
