1. Some years are rough, and still we read, a little or a lot. God uses it all for food to my brain and my spirit. I share your admiration for Mr. Schmidt, but Okay for Now is my favorite. I still think that book should have won a Newbery.

    What great suggestions! I’m putting Some Writer on tbr list!
    I really enjoyed Storycraft by John R Erickson and Caught up in a Story by Sarah Clarkson. Both affirmed my literary heart and encouraged my homeschooling.
    For read-alouds, I really enjoyed reading Lumber Camp Library with my daughter and son. Plus the Little Pilgrims Progress and the BFG.

  3. I so agree with Lewis’s statement. Good children’s books are good at any age. I am not sure if I’ve heard of Schmidt – I’ll have to go check out your review.

  4. I added The Wednesday Wars to my 2016 favorites list–I will definitely add his others to by TBR stack for 2017!

    Melissa Sweet is one of my all-time favorite authors/illustrators. Our small-town library doesn’t have her newest book yet, so I am waiting as patiently as I can.
