Award Winning Books Challenge - UPDATE

The Award Winning Books Challenge is hosted by The Reading Housewives of Indiana and Books From Bleh to Basically Amazing.

I was excited to embark on this challenge because I knew it would afford me the opportunity to re-read some books that I love and try out some new ones that I was excited about using in my classroom!

Here is my status update so far:
