Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren
Fantasy adventures with the precocious Pippi Longstocking, who falls off her father's pirate ship and washes up in a small coastal town in Florida. Before long she is influencing the local children with her mischief-making and infectious attitude.
My daughter and I enjoyed our reading of Pippi Longstocking! Each evening we took turns reading the hilarious journey Astrid Lindgren set up for us. I once read this as a child, many years ago and remember watching the movie; however, this reading alongside my daughter made the book so much more entertaining. With each giggle and smile, I knew this is one that we will both remember for a long time. We are now planning to watch the movie, you can view the trailer in the video below:
This is definitely a book that I would like to have in my classroom library for students to borrow and read. I am adding it to my classroom wishlist on Amazon.com to ensure of its placement in the future.
Speaking of classroom libraries, I have a fabulous website that I found that makes managing one a piece of cake. Booksource Classroom Organizer is a free web-based program that helps you organize and inventory your classroom library, find the right leveled literature and assess student development.I have already began to scan in the books that I have already purchased/received. Students will be able to scan the book to check out and return. I will have access to what the students are reading in their free time, which will assist me with their likes and dislikes; as well as provide them with more opportunities with books!
This book was read in part of my #BookaDay Summer Reading Challenge, you can learn more about this here. Please feel free to subscribe to my blog or follow me on social media to follow my journey through the books I read. Until next time .....
