Read any good books lately?

It’s finals week at my school, which means my classroom has been appropriated and I’ve relocated to our library/copying center for tests/random room. I’ve decided to make the most of my time and dust/organize the books by reading level. Once I’ve finished, we can start moving the books into our recently built library.

It’s actually been a lot of fun going through shelf upon shelf of the randomest books people have thought to donate to Africa over the years. I thought I’d share some of the gems I’ve found so far with you…

1

No primary school needs this many romance novels in its collection. In fact, I’d go as far as saying they’d probably be just fine if they had a grand total of zero of these kinds of books.

2

If you think the cover of this book is priceless, get a look at the backside…

3

I’m not sure how I got through my teen years without this book.

4

Four more incredibly helpful and easily accessible books.

5

That’s right…a book about the Minnesota Vikings. It’s like they knew I was coming : )

6

Hey look, FINALLY, a book for kids. But wait…it’s not in English, Amharic, or Sidamigna…the three languages my students are actually learning.

7

But every once and a while there actually is a real gem. And now I can’t wait to read Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree with my students.

  1. “No primary school needs this many romance novels in its collection” – SO funny!!!! It’s both slightly sad and funny at the same time I suppose. But heck, I laughed 😀
