This month I’m only featuring two titles From My Bookshelf – with good reason, of course. The two books, Heartbeat by Sharon Creech and Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen, have a single subject on their respective covers; the former is exceptionally drawn and the latter is full of whimsy. I have read both of these books, but they are certainly due for a re-read (and maybe an un-haul, but I won’t dwell on that now).
If you’ve kept up with my From My Bookshelf posts, you know that I’ve dedicated a few to my childhood and young adulthood books. This will be one of those posts, which is part randomness and part planning, as the first week in February is Children’s Authors and Illustrators Week. As you’ll see if you keep reading, the three books I’ve chosen for this post are not illustrated children’s books, but each of them have won an award for their contribution to children’s and young adult literature.
