Today I harmlessly logged on Amazon to see the different types of Clue board games that are available and ended up adding 8 BOOKS to my shopping cart! How does this happen?
I think one of the most interesting books in my cart right now is Out of My Mind.
This book is F&P level S and DRA level 40. It is an older book published in 2012 and is about a special needs girl who cannot speak or walk BUT has a brilliant mind. My daughter and I read the first chapter titled Words. and our mouths just hung open afterwards! Amazing. Amazon reviewers gave the book 5 out of 5 stars.
On her website there is a quick video of Sharon Draper discussing her book: http://sharondraper.com/bookdetail.asp?id=35
Not only do I love the title of this book but I also love the cover. Look at how much fun those kids are having learning about words! This book also got 5 out of 5 starts on Amazon.
If anyone has experience with either of these books let me know if they are worth the purchase!
