These are my favorites....what are yours?
These are my top five, although there are so many books that I would rank among my favorites. This was a hard list to think up, because I've read so many over the years. I tried to think about books that make me go "Wow..." when I read them. Here's why they're where they are on my list: (They're not in any real order, because each book is so different from the others)
THE LIFE OF PI, by Yann Martel: This is a wonderful story, and the ending really messed with my head.
DINNER WITH A PERFECT STRANGER, by David Gregory: This one definitely made me go WOW! You'll have to read it to understand...
THE FALL OF FREDDY THE LEAF, by Leo Buscaglia: I read this book in a bookstore, and it totally captured my heart. I actually want this book to be read at my funeral.
THANK YOU, MR. FALKER, by Patricia Polacco: This book epitomizes the reason I am in education--Patricia Polacco is at the top of my list of people I'd love to meet one day. She's my hero! I can't read this one without crying.
The Holy Bible: I had to include this one, because I spend a lot of time with it.
