We're starting to read this year's California Young Reader Medal nominees this week so I'm concentrating on those books and any books that correlate with them. And, as usual, I'm trying to sneak in some of the many new books we get each month.
The chapter book I'm currently reading is the second in John Stephens' The Books of Beginning series: The Fire Chronicle. The publication date is early October but I received my copy (an ARC -- Advance Reader Copy) at the American Library Association conference in June. It's one of the perks of being a library media specialist!
