What Are You Reading?

Today I will share a few more book recommendations that I believe your whole family will enjoy, but I am also wondering what are you reading this summer?  Has your child found a book or series that they love, is there a website or blog they like, have you found a book you can’t put down? I would love to hear from you with more book recommendations you can email me; rbrown@jpsonline.org, post to our facebook page, or tweet to our hashtag #pinewoodpride.

Coyote is a twelve year old girl who lives in an old school bus with her father.  The bus has been remodeled into an RV and they are traveling all around the country.  Coyote learns that a park that is close to her heart is about to be destroyed and she has only a few days to make it back home.  

Sunny by Jason Reynolds


This is part of Jason Reynolds track series which started with the book Ghost.  All of these books have been such great reads, each tells the story of a member of a city track team.  This one centers on Sunny, and how he takes a risk moving his place on the team and his place in his family.

Now your turn share with me what you have been reading?

Pinewood Building Tour (2016)

This video is a couple of years old, so some of the staff members have changed, but the building set up is still the same.  Many children feel better prepared for school the more they have been in the building or have seen the building, showing them the video before school starts may calm some anxiety.
