I love a great book recommendation and Courtney from Ramona Recommends totally nailed it with this month's book club pick.
I plan on using this book as an end of the year read aloud with my firsties next year, since Billy is a second grader. It would obviously be a great beginning of the year read aloud of second grade.
On a random note...just as exciting as reading the book is my new bookmark obsession. How great is this one?!?
