  • Where the Mountain Meets the Moon

    Posted by Susanne Fuller on 5/20/2020

    Enjoy the first chapter of one of my all time favorite books! If you don't already happen to have a copy somewhere at home, I was able to borrow it with my eCard from the Boston Public Library.

  • The Benefits of being an Octopus

    Posted by Susanne Fuller on 5/12/2020

    Do you need an idea for a good book to read? Try The Benefits of being an Octopus. To help you get started, join the author, Ann Braden, while she reads the first chapter.

     

    Summary: Seventh-grader Zoey Albro focuses on caring for three younger siblings and avoiding rich classmates at school until her fascination with octopuses gets her on the debate team and she begins to speak out.

     

    I borrowed the book on my Kindle with my Boston Public Library eCard.
