I've decided to start a new theme-Book Talk Thursdays. Inspired by The Book Whisperer, when Donalyn Miller suggests reading more books for children, I've decided to do just that. Every Thursday, I will review a children or young adult book that I am currently enjoying.I just discovered the book Weslandia by Paul Fleischman and I am in love! Wesley is an odd boy. He has no friends, and he just doesn't fit in. Sparked by what he learned in school about civilizations, he decides to create a summer project-his own civilization complete with it's own staple food crop, clothing, counting system, games, and alphabet. This is such a great book about creativity, differences, and even civilizations and the possibilities of using this book in the classroom are endless! I hope you enjoy this book as much as I have!
