  1. Agreed. I was a bit underwhelmed by a the selections they provided this year. In my opinion there are a lot of other popular and exciting new books to promote that didn’t make the list. I’m not saying that there aren’t some great, fun books on these lists, but I think if we rely on the Beehives as our primary source for book promotion our students are going to miss out on a lot of other good stuff.

  2. I have read Out of My Mind and it is a wonderful book. It will be a good book to read aloud in class and I think upper grades will enjoy it.
    It is about an 11 year old girl who loves words but can’t talk and is in a wheelchair. It is a great story about how we treat others.
    This one and Because of Mr. Terupt are recommended by Peggy Sharp.
