Kathryn Reads KidLit

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

The Riverman

The Riverman - Aaron Starmer I don't generally post my books on Goodreads at 1:30 in the morning, but I don't normally stay up totally engrossed and invested in a book like I was with The Riverman. I just loved that he so captured the thoughts and feelings of kids this age in such a believable and authentic way - the uncomfortable and confusing and not always sensible emotions and thought processes I feel like I remember. All that and a unique and engaging story! I am not sure yet if I will feel comfortable recommending to my 5th graders - sexual references including comments about getting girls to "give it up" make me nervous about suggesting it....this may be one I strongly suggest our Jr. High teacher read and share instead.
