This past Friday night we discussed the Newbery criteria of Theme. Tangle of Knots was mentioned, as well as Counting by 7s. That jump-started our “around the table” discussion of everything else we had been reading, sharing with each other and both agreeing and disagreeing about our opinions of what we had read. At the end of our time together, we ended up taking a lot more books home – because of course we need more of us to read those we have mixed reviews about! What titles are we missing so far this year?
