Reading Now

Just want to keep everyone up to date with what I'm reading now.  I have an amazing English teacher who picks out the best stuff for us.   

Here is the thrilling story of Rikki, a fearless young mongoose who finds himself locked in a life-and-death struggle to protect a boy and his parents from Nag and Nagaina, the two enormous cobras who stalk the gardens outside the family's home in India. Nobel Prize winner Rudyard Kipling's timeless masterpiece has been lovingly passed from one generation of readers to the next. Triumphantly brought to life in stunning watercolors from Caldecott Honor artist Jerry Pinkney, this is a tale that will win the hearts of young and old alike

It's a book I wouldn't have picked up to read, but I am really enjoying it.  The main character is a mongoose named Rikki-Tikki-Tavi.   We've just started reading, but I like the story.  

My teacher has some great literature planned for us this year.  I'll keep everyone updated!

  1. I love when I read a book that I wouldn't have picked out and it turns out to be better than expected. Your teacher sounds awesome!
