Teaser: Nikki & Deja: The Newsy News Newsletter

Nikki & Deja: The Newsy News Newsletter by Karen English. Illustrated by Laura Freeman. Clarion Books, an imprint of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing. January 2010. Reviewed from ARC from ALA.

Teaser: The third book in a new series about third graders Nikki and Deja. Dialogue and classroom dynamics are sharply portrayed by English, herself an elementary school teacher. Children beginning to read chapter books will like this mix of illustrations and typical school day events (lost book club money, bossy friends, skateboard daredevils). While this book isn't out until 2010, the first two books in the series are available (Nikki and Deja, Nikki and Deja: Birthday Blues)

How adorable are these books!!! So books with African-Americans on the cover really are selling. Shocker there.

Can't wait to get my hands on these... I'm anxiously awaiting their arrival! Love series that are captivating to the middle-elementary (reluctant readers) level!

Oh, I need these in my library. Most of my readers are reluctant or non-readers.

I love the Nikki & Deja books. Just brought Keena Ford and the Second Grade Mix up by new author Melissa Thomson, illus by Frank Morrison. I love his work.
