I would be remiss in our Looking for Newbery series if I didn't include Bigger than a Breadbox by Laurel Snyder. It came out in the fall, but I had the good fortune to read it before that time. Because of an offer Laurel made on twitter about a free Skype visit with her, I have already written two posts about this book. One was my review of Bigger Than a Breadbox, and the other was a synopsis of both of my classes' opportunity to Skype with Laurel Snyder and talk about Bigger Than a Breadbox and a myriad of other questions pertaining to the life of a writer. Our skype visit with Laurel Snyder was fabulous!
Bigger Than a Breadbox was our second shared read aloud of the year, and I think I speak for all 49 of my students when I say that Laurel Snyder is an amazing author, and we all loved our time with her and our time sharing this book together!!
