Hope to "see" you there!
Happy last full day at GWL! I can't believe it!!
If you haven't finished reading yet, please do so. I need to make sure I get those books off of your record before report cards get distributed.
I'm going to contact your teachers about coming down tomorrow, first thing, to catch up for a few minutes to talk about the ending and collect your books. Does that sound good?
See you then!
But, I don't want Barnaby to end!!! :(
So, we left off with Chapter 23. Barnaby's cord gets chewed by a fox and he ends up lost in space! A bit wacky and weird and fantastical, but isn't that what reading is all about? I wish I had the imagination of John Boyne (the author).
I couldn't help but feel that anxiety and "burning sensation" with Barnaby when he ended up at the hospital waiting to see his parents, friends, and family the next day.
He talks about how "he will never have any adventures again?" If you'd been separated from your parents for that long - would that be the thought that runs through your head? I can't help but still feel badly for Barnaby's family dynamic and the relationships within.
I want to talk to you guys about what Henry tells him when they are finally reunited... I am so angry!!! PLUS, it leads me to believe that the series of events that follows is totally warranted!
Can't wait to meet next week to talk about the ending!
Let me know on here when you've finished! :) Mrs. Smith
Pages 209 - 250?
I'm currently in Chicago for my brother's wedding!! We can assign reading through the weekend - is that okay? What chapter falls around page 250... can someone clarify? I didn't bring my book with me (I'm busy running after Marin, the flower girl!).
Hi Book Biters! So happy to hear that you're enjoying the book and want to read on!
Why don't we try to go up to around 200? I'm not in school right now, so I don't know where an exact spot should end.
Why don't you reply here with where we should go to. I don't want to go too far ahead, in case someone is falling behind.
So happy to hear you are all enjoying it so much!
:) Happy Reading, Barnaby Friends!
Alright, Book Biters -- what do you think?? What's happening with Barnaby? Joshua? the parents? Marjorie? Ethel? Vincent? Assistant Lady...Newspaper Crew?
Leave comments and questions here...
If you have read to 130 and would like to continue to page 148 before tomorrow's meeting, please do so!
