BOOK REPORT mable librarians share favorite reads

When you love books as much as the Mable campus librarians, it’s tough to single out your favorites.  We made them choose, so here are the best of the best reads according to Mrs. Abouabdo and Mrs. Lloyd.

Wayside School Gets a Little Stranger by Louis Sachar
Fairmont Reading Level: 3.3
AR Points: 3

What Mrs. Abouabdo says about this book:
I love to read the Wayside School Series by Louis Sachar.  What could be more fun than a school that’s built vertical – that’s right, the builder put each classroom on top of another!  Wayside School is filled with wacky and wonderful characters.  If you enjoy reading aloud, there are so many different voices you can use to portray the truly strange cast of characters including frogs, skunks, and an orange named Fido.  You will laugh all the way through!

Here Lies the Librarian by Richard Peck
Fairmont Reading Level: 5.1
AR Points: 4

What Mrs. Lloyd says about this book:
SO MANY BOOKS, so little time!  However, when asked to share one of my favorites, I can recommend Here Lies the Librarian.  As with many of the books by Newbery Medal-winning author Richard Peck, it is full of quirky characters, folksy settings and hilarious larger-than-life moments. It is a delicious comedy that is unexpectedly moving.
