I am an upper elementary teacher who loves reading and sharing books with my students and fellow educators.

Under the Egg

Under the Egg - Laura Marx Fitzgerald An engaging mystery with a couple of strong girl characters leading the way - love that one of them is "weird" in that she isn't your average young lady living in NYC, but cans and preserves from their garden, repurposes items she finds at home (and around town), has no TV or cell phone, and doesn't shrink from this uniqueness. A girl after my own heart! Great art history/appreciation without being boring, I have kids I know will like it. I didn't love the way the mystery was solved, would have preferred that the research underway won the day, but overall, a fun premise and enjoyable read. Grades 4+ Read July, 2014
