6:00 am 10 Comments

It’s the final stretch of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge

Welcome to W!

(pronounced dub yah cuz I lived in Texas for 10 years)

W is for weird. The books I’m sharing with you aren’t weird.

But, at the end of this post, I’ll bring you something weird.

The multicultural books I’m highlighting today are:

Wildfire by Mary Pauline Lowry

Wildfire, a book by my bestie Mary Pauline Lowry, about a female firefighter. Here’s my review.

While We Run by Karen Healy, a super sci fi book from Australia!The characters African expats living down under.This title was one of the books I judged for the CYBILS award.  Here’s my review.

And now for something weird:

Weird but True by National Geographic for Kids

Here are some weird but true facts I thought you’d love:

  1. I dunno.. The pepper seems like a good way to spend the day sneezing!

  2. Hmm, I had no idea. I am willing to try washing my clothes in black pepper to see! (Did you know washing your clothes in white vinegar makes them cleaner?)

  3. I totally would. Had I known it before 🙂
    still might.
    and weird but true is my son’s “best book ever” 🙂

  4. One of my daughter’s friends is a firefighter and she is strong and brave. I worry about her when the Santa Ana winds begin to blow but I know she can take care of herself out there. I think I’ll get this book for her.
    Weird but true food facts looks like fun. I love to learn about strange but true things.

    1. after reading these comments, i think you’ll all appreciate that every time I read the tip about pepper I couldnt stop thinking about Alice in Wonderland and the cook screaming PEPPER!! and the poor baby sneezing.

  5. The next time I run out of washing powder and don’t feel like a midnight run to the store i just might try the pepper . The book sounds good. True, the kids today live for reality TV and I love reading about corruption. BTW, we pronounce Dub-Ya the same way, here in Louisiana
