My New Favorite Book

Fire Up with Reading! by Toni Buzzeo is a picture book that enthusiastically celebrates the joy of reading. Patty Lee wants to be recognized as the top reader in fourth grade and earn the right to wear the Chinese dragon costume during the Read Across America Day parade. But her rival, Carmen Rosa Pena, just might surpass her! When Carmen takes the lead, Patty Lee goes to Mrs. Skorupski for help and a new plan--listening to audio books as well as reading books!

I love how the librarian in this book encourages reading! This is a great text for lessons on classmates, competition, and peer relationships.
