Kathryn Reads KidLit

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

From Norvelt to Nowhere

From Norvelt to Nowhere - Jack Gantos I really liked Dead End in Norvelt and liked this follow-up, just not as much. I do think that my kids will like this book just as much as the first, despite Miss Volker's history lessons (which I enjoyed and which led to some googling - Rugby, TN added to list of places I've learned about from books and would like to visit and read more about). Also, despite Miss Volker's age, there is a lot of action, always something happening. I have heard the audiobook, with Gantos reading, is excellent - which I have seen with his Joey Pigza books - and I will be suggesting my son listen instead of read. Grade 4+ Read June, 2014
