New Crayons

New Crayons is a metaphor for multicultural lit. The excitement of getting a new book is kind of like the excitement felt as a child opening a new box of crayons.This week we got.

The Tooth Fairy Meets El Raton Perez by Rene Colaton Lainez illus by Tom Lintern

The Firefly Letters by Margarita Engle

32 Candles by Ernessa T. Carter

Where I Belong by Gillian Carter

No summaries this time. Thankfully all the covers are lovely. What new crayons did you get for the week?

True, all the covers are pretty! Sorry I forgot to include commentary.

I just started The Necessary Hunger and finished The Wedding. The Wedding was sooo good.

Bonnie - thanks for the link. Looking forward to seeing what you thought of the Ann Patchett book.

Ari- I am so happy you are finally reading Necessary Hunger. That book is crazy good.
