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

The Night Gardener

The Night Gardener - Jonathan Auxier My foray into books with creepy covers is proving very fruitful! I really loved this book - I am a sucker for beautifully written sentences and expressive, expansive use of words and this was just bursting with wonderful writing. It could be a bit frightening for some kids, might really depend on what images are already in their sweet little heads to draw on. I did not think the descriptions were terribly graphic. I think I have many 5th graders who would enjoy a bit of creepiness and get great reading experience at the same time. Read June, 2014
