Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

Vive La Paris

Vive La Paris - Esmé Raji Codell This is a great companion novel to Sahara Special. I enjoyed it just as much and Esmé Raji Codell has a great way of teaching kids lessons without talking down to them.

In this novel Paris learns:

1. About WWII and Natzi's from her Piano teacher Mrs. Rosen.

2. About treating your enemies as friends because they maybe more like you than either of you wants to admit. Here Paris looks through her rose colored glasses to see vie en rose.

3. About death and new beginnings.

Again, I highly recommend this book for students and teachers alike because it's great to see vie en rose and learn something new.
