Leaders in the Library
We are really excited to introduce a new section in our Newsletter this week: Leaders in the Library. Every fortnight, our leaders will be providing reviews on books and novels that they have recently read.
Please enjoy the first two reviews by our leaders, Louisa and Thomas.
Author: Lily Lamotte
'Measuring Up' is about a girl named Cici who has just moved to Seattle from Taiwan, leaving her grandmother. The book follows her journey of trying to get enough money for her grandmother to come and live with her family.
'Measuring Up' is a graphic novel. I like it because it gives you a view into Taiwanese culture; it is easy to view and understand; and you can relate to the main character, Cici. 'Measuring Up' is a good text for primary students.

Wings of Fire: A Guide to the Dragon World
Author: Tui T. Sutherland
I like the book, 'Wings of Fire', because it has a sense of urgency. The pictures are well drawn; it’s easy to keep up with the pace of the text and can be related to you. (Even if you're not a dragon). I think this book is great for all those who like dragons and adventure!
