Kathryn Reads KidLit

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

The River

The River - Gary Paulsen I listened to this immediately following Hatchet, so maybe it was just "incredibly bad luck fatigue" but I couldn't really love this one. I think that students will, particularly boys - there is edge of your seat "will they make it" moments and I do think that Paulsen again does a good job of being inside Brian's head and helping to make it seem that Brian does react like a normal kid could in this situation. Listened to June, 2014
