Mock Newbery 2014 Club Summer #1 Meeting

Fantastic Friday!

We're continuing Picture Book Month and evaluating books for our Mock Caldecott 2013 Club. Here are two more books I shared:
Imagination Theme
The Cloud Spinner

Music Theme


We discussed the theme of both and how Nightsong can be looked at as a metaphor for life - you can go out on your own and fulfill your dreams, but you can always come home.  It would make a great graduation gift! The Cloud Spinner taught us to only use what we need.  Don't be greedy!  Neily said, "Take only memories, leave only footprints."  Reece said, "It's like the Boy Scout motto, Leave no trace."

Since I met Loren Long recently at The Blue Manatee, I leave you with some video and pictures that I took at the event:


We're also enjoying Capture the Flag and our book group mysteries.  Here are spin cams of the JF Burns groups:
