The Book That Made Me

A Collection of 32 Personal Stories

Written by Judith Ridge

I really liked the idea behind this book but was a little disappointed that I did not recognize many of the authors in this collection. The essays are interesting but without being able to connect with the authors work I don’t see many students being interested in this. The essays also are a little mature for an elementary audience.

  1. Thanks for the review to make us aware. I looked this book up and most of the authors are from Australia and New Zealand. Probably not a good fit for my elementary school. But I love the cover and that wonderful “book tree!!”

  2. Thanks for the review Jessica. I also saw the book and the cute cover and wondered about purchasing it, but now I don’t think I will.
