Kathryn Reads KidLit

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


Airman - Eoin Colfer Reflection: A book that had me constantly going to the internet to see what was historical and what was fiction. An interesting introduction to early ballooning, regardless. Action and adventure abound. There is a truly evil character, fortunately he is surrounded by many less blood-thirsty men. Similarly, Conor seems to have a calming effect on other characters who could have violent tendencies. My main concern honestly is a not vividly described birth in the very beginning. Only because I don't know if it would raise questions that parents/adults were not expecting to address, I might hesitate to recommend it to certain students. A book that I enjoyed reading. Careful 5+. Read May, 2014
