  1. I have not read C’ity of Glass’. I have read ‘The Chosen One’ and ‘Love, Aubrey’. If City of Glass is as good as the other two then I look forward to reading it.

    stumbled onto your BLOG. You love a lot of the books that i have read professionally and in the classroom. If you have not read the BOOK WHISPERER….search GOOGLE….you need to check it out. I believe it will be aligned with your instructional paradigm and you will love it. Written by a 6th grade teacher in Keller Texas!!!

    Hi Kristine, I was wondering how one can approach you to send you children’s books to review. I’m the founder of and we currently have 50 children’s books and growing. They are interactive and animated as well, I think you will enjoy. I would be honored to give you free access to all the stories for your review. Please email me at if possible, thanks so much.
