  1. Thanks for these books, Amy — I need to review the one we have read, and we have a middle grades fiction sitting on the shelf to read, too.

    I can’t tell you how much I love your blog and Read Aloud Thursday. I love how focused you are and how much information I gain whenever I visit your site.

  2. I have been wanting to link up again, but it’s been a while since I have shared a book we have been reading. I finally have a book review again 🙂 Thanks for hosting. I have never had the pleasure of being a bookmobile patron either!

  3. We read Bone Dog too, having seen it (via your links) on the Cybils list. I thought it was such a sad book that I decided to return it without even reading it to Basbusa, but she found it, and, of course, as soon as I said that we weren’t actually going to read that one, it became the one and only book that she wanted to read. So I went through it with her, more giving her the general idea rather than reading the text and explaining everything, and she enjoyed it a lot… hopefully without making too much sense out of it. I think three is a bit young for a story that dwells such a lot on the death of a beloved pet, and I didn’t want to dampen her enthusiasm for Halloween with too much emphasis on real skeletons arising and chasing people!

    I’ll definitely check out the mobile library one – we had one in Ireland when I was little, and I bet Basbusa would love the idea.

  4. Ditto what Carrie said about Bone Dog — but your review, given that you feel the same way, makes me very curious. I may look for it!

    Biblioburro sounds like wonderfulness unqualified.
