Kathryn Reads KidLit

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

The Boundless

The Boundless - Kenneth Oppel An enjoyable read, with action and adventure. I think my kids will enjoy the fantasy elements, although I felt that they somewhat distracted from the story and were unnecessary. I was also disappointed that the concerns that Will had during his journey through the Titanicesque train were not addressed in the conclusion of the story. Some murder and a sasquatch does remove a man's head, but none graphically described; some unnecessary drinking by the minor main character. Despite that, I would be fine with most of my 5th graders reading it. Grades 5+ Read May, 2014
