Newbery honor book, Beehive
So, obviously, I read this one with Boo. (If you're on the home page, just scroll down for her review if you missed it Saturday.) Mister sat in a little, but it didn't hold his attention.
This was a lot of reading aloud, which I don't love, but I really enjoyed the story, as did Boo. I'm sure she didn't understand quite all of it, but she liked it.
I love all of the little stories within the story-- each set apart with a different font from the main text and titled. It really emphasized the storytelling traditions.
And Grace Lin weaves all of these different stories together flawlessly, creating a rich tapestry.
Definitely highly recommended.
