    this is my second book for the readventurer challenge.this book is verysweet and ordinarily,a sweet book would make me feel like i had chiggers or something else foul crawling under my skin, and its earnest gee whizzery would make me feel unclean just because of my mental rolodex of words that aresatisfying to say in moments of astonishment or cr...

    A Review in Two PartsPart OneAriel, recommended this book to me, and she wrote a fine good review of the book You can find it by clicking on her name I really liked the book, but didn t love it I think the things I didn t love about the book were me being a crank For example, the myopic narrator view point of a seventh grader was great it caught the distortions that a kid sees the world through and the way teachers and others outside of their own circle are depersonalized into roles instead A Review in Two PartsPart OneAriel, recommended this book to me, and she wrote a fine good review of the book You can find it by clicking on her name I really liked the book, but didn t love it I think the things I didn t love about the book were me being a crank For example, the myopic narrator view point of a seventh grader was great it caught the distortions that a kid sees the world through and the way teachers and others outside of their own circle are depersonalized into roles instead of people Without being preachy, though But, then I would not like the Wally and Beaver golly gee attitude that would at times sneak into the book Sometimes it worked for good comic effect but it seemed too pure and innocent for ...

    This book is a heartwarming mix of nostalgia, life lessons, beauty, and awkward humor with a nice side of brown light perfect cream puffs And let me tell you it s really swell.Holling Hoodhood is the only kid in the seventh grade who doesn t have to attend either Temple or Catechism on Wednesday afternoons No, instead he gets to spend every single Wednesday afternoon with Mrs Baker, who hates his guts Each Wednesday she finds new ways to torture him endless cleaning of chalkboard erasers, This book is a heartwarming mix of nostalgia, life lessons, beauty, and awkward humor with a nice side of brown light perfect cream puffs And let me tell you it s really swell.Holling Hoodhood is the only kid in the seventh grade who doesn t have to attend either Temple or Catechism on Wednesday afternoons No, instead he gets to spend every single Wednesday afternoon with Mrs Baker, who hates his guts Each Wednesday she finds new ways to torture him endless cleaning of chalkboard erasers, rodent wrangling, and Shakespeare On the surface, this book seems idealistic and a bit light But as it unfolds, there are moments of truth, tragedy, and deep emotion The story takes place during one of the most tumultuous times in American history, and the undercurrents of the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights Movement are ever present.In the beginning, Holling is an unassuming, agreeable boy who seems to t...

    There s something very pleasant about kids books written in the 60s They have an assurance that books written in later,apologetic and hesitant decades lack They re usually untroubled by the social upheaval all around them Hippies may show up here or there, but the books arelikely to be about time travel, or inventions, or mysteries.This is one of the things you can only learn from consuming texts from that era that people who lived in the 60s didn t know they were living in th There s something very pleasant about kids books written in the 60s They have an assura...

    If a junior high aged boy is part of your household, give him this book He ll love it, and it will do him good And if you happen to have been in junior high during the year 1968, this book can serve as a reminder of life and national politics at that time In case you don t remember, 1968 is the year that both Martin Luther King and Robert F Kennedy were assassinated.People today worry about the polarization of American politics Back in the late 60s things werepolarized, and in a muc If a junior high aged boy is part of your household, give him this book He ll love it, and it will do him good And if you happen ...

    At first I thought this book was too young for me The protagonist is a 7th grader, an age I am far past It was a bit slow at first and my initial conclusion was This would be great book for a middle school boy, especially one you want to get interested in Shakespeare, but not so great for the general reader.And then I kept reading and realized that this was a brilliant, touching and funny book Schmidt is excellent at making believable, nuanced characters not something I often see at books a At first I thought this book was too young for me The protagonist is a 7th grader, an age I am far past It was a bit slow at first and my initial conclusion was This would be great book for a middle school boy, especially one you want to get interested in Shakespeare, but not so great for the general reader.And then I kept reading and realized that this was a brilliant, touching and funny book Schmidt is excellent at making believable, nuanced characters not something I often see at books aimed at preteens None of the villainous characters are simply one note The cafeteria lady, for example, loses her son in the Vietnam War and takes it out on the little Vietnamese refugee at the school But at the same time the cafeteria lady shows true kindness and charity to others Holling s father is another example He is demanding, distant, competitive, and often gets angry with his daug...

    Oh it s the season to read the books we adults want children to read, and in actual fact they have no interest in doing so Wednesday Wars sadly falls into that catagory It s 1968, and Holling Hoodhood is stuck with his teacher every Wednesday afternoon when the rest of his class attends religious education classes that their respective places of worship Holling learns to love Shakespeare, and how to run a good race, and he learns to understand his teacher, Mrs Baker, and to love his older si Oh it s the season to read the books we adults want children to read, and in actual fact they have no interest in doing so Wednesday Wars sadly falls into that catagory It s 1968, and Holling Hoodhood is stuck with his teacher every Wednesday afternoon when the rest of his class attends religious education classes that their respective places of worship Holling learns to love S...

    I think I have come to understand what it takes for a book to be awarded Newbery It seems these Newberry awarded books are just so wholesome, so full of great life lessons, so sweet and touching in a non nauseating or preachy way The Wednesday Wars is just like that.13 year old Holling Hoodhood is in trouble While his Jewish and Catholic classmates attend religious studie...

    Honestly This book is pretty much brilliant It blends humor with emotion in just the right doses It presents a mostly action less storyline that s still strangely compelling, and it wields theme like a sword But, unfortunately, it s also got pluralistic humanistic undertones that I wasn t really a fan of The book has a lot about finding yourself and choosing your own future The main character ends up trying out elements of a number of different religions and then having emotional, happ Honestly This book is pretty much brilliant It blends humor with emotion in just the right doses It presents a mostly action less storyline that s still strangely compelling, and it wields theme like a sword But, unfortunately, it s also got pluralistic humanistic undertones that I wasn t really a fan of The book has a lot about finding yourself and choosing your own future The ...
