  1. The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors has been a hit with students. Drew Daywalt is so creative!

  2. I loved Starry River of the Sky and one day, I'd like to reread it and the other two Grace Lin books that go with it. And I should take a page out of your book and read Out of My Mind, still sitting on the shelf. I can't wait to see what you think of it.

    1. I loved the first book--Where the Mountain Meets the Moon. I cannot wait to start this new one. Hope you can fit Out of My Mind in soon. :)

    1. I know. There are just so many good books and only so much time to read them!

  5. I've loved all of this Grace Lin series so far, but think I am behind. I need to get to this one.

  6. Ooh, I love the idea of an Author spotlight - I have yet to read Grace Lin's novels, although I make use of her Ted Talk in my PD workshops and in my teaching. I just borrowed The Bad Seed from our library and really looking forward to reading it.

    1. I just discovered Grace Lin's books. I have enjoyed them all so far. I have not seen her Ted Talk. I am going to look for it. Thanks for the tip.

  7. I love giving Grace Lin's series books to emerging readers. They also make great read-alouds.

  9. What a great list of books. I am currently reading Where the Mountain Meets the Moon to my 3rd graders. Out of My Mind is one of my favorite books because it was the first book my son every recommended to me.

  10. Your post reminds me that I haven't yet Starry River of the Sky or When the Sea Turned to Silver, despite really enjoying Where the Mountain Meets the Moon. I have enjoyed Grace Lin's Year of the Dog series, though and all Ling and Ting books. Great choice for an author spotlight!
