After a break from blogging, I'm starting back.
I want to highly recommend the book: My Life as a Book by Janet Tashjian.
Derek is a reluctant reader who finds himself in a Learning Camp for the summer with three books to read. Derek is an active boy who loves to draw. He discovers a family mystery from the past which causes him to see that stories are all around.
This book would be great for fans of Diary of the Whimpy Kids. The nicely paced story with sketches in the margins, will entice readers to become engaged in Derek's story.
