Monthly Read Aloud

My Read Aloud Book for this month is… Ban This Book by Alan Gratz.

A fourth grader fights back when From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E. L. Konigsburg is challenged by a well-meaning parent and taken off the shelves of her school library. Amy Anne is shy and soft-spoken, but don’t mess with her when it comes to her favorite book in the whole world. 

Amy Anne is a wonderful character and the story provokes lots of discussion about books and reading. Suitable for Year 5 to 8.
