If your kids want the real scoop on pirates rather than "made-up" stories, here's the book for them. http://abt.cm/1hGi1kq
Eyewitness Pirate is for all those kids 8 to 12 who don't want "made-up" stories but want accurate information about pirates and their history.

CHASING SECRETS by Gennifer Choldenko is reviewed today by Dornel Cerro.
"Like her earlier Newbery award-winning work, AL CAPONE DOES MY SHIRTS, Choldenko’s new middle grade novel, CHASING SECRETS, is a wonderful coming-of-age-story that blends historical fiction, mystery, and humor, while providing a fascinating glimpse into San Francisco’s colorful past."

Happy to share this terrific new picture book from Anne Sibley O'Brien that encourages empathy in children.

It's back-to-school time and I'M NEW HERE introduces three students, Maria from Guatemala, Jin from South Korea, and Fatimah from Somalia, beginning their educational life in an entirely different country, our country, and facing perhaps the biggest challenge when many have come here under a variety of circumstances. From Charlesbridge Publishing.

I'm so sorry, Sue,, I deleted your comment by mistakel But here is what you said. Great review.  The book sounds wonderful.  Definitely one to buy.  Have you ever read Richard Peck's book, On the Wings of Heroes?  Similar to this and one I highly recommend too.

Thanks, Sue.  I did read Richard Peck's book On the Wings of Heroes and reviewed it on my blog.  It was a wonderful book.

+Claire Mizukawa I love all the new graphics out now, too.  At first, I was a little hesitant, but now I see the real benefit of them, especially for reluctant readers.
