In My Mailbox (38)

As always, In My Mailbox is brought to you by Kristi, AKA The Story Siren.

I only got two books in the mail this week. Oddly enough, although they came from two different sources, they are both by the same author.

Looking Like Me by Walter Dean Myers and Christopher Myers

Release Date: Available Now from EgmontUSA


When you look in a mirror, who do you see?

A boy? A girl?
A son? A daughter?
A runner? A dancer?

Whoever and whatever you see–
just put out your fist and give yourself an "I am" BAM!

This jumping, jazzy, joyful picture book by the award-winning team of Walter Dean and Christoper Myers celebrates every child, and every thing that child can be.

Lockdown by Walter Dean Myers

Release Date: February 2, 2010 from Amistad


Instead of shutting out the world, can Reese turn his life around?

For fourteen-year-old Reese, it's hard to stay out of trouble when the code at the Progress Center is survival of the fittest. Can he get a second chance, even if he's locked up in juvie hall?

I also bought a few books. It was sort of a slow week with the holiday, but I managed to find something to buy.

Scarlett & Crimson Book 1: Darqstarz Rising by Allyson Black
Scream Street Book 1: Fang of the Vampire by Tommy Donbavand
Seven Spools of Thread: A Kwanzaa Story by Angela Shelf Medearis
There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Bell! by Lucille Colandro

These are all for younger readers. The last two are read alouds I'll be doing for Christmas at school.

That's it for me this week. I can't wait to see what everyone else picked up.


  1. Great books you got this week. They both look really good. Hope you enjoy reading all your books.

  2. Hope you enjoy Fang of the Vampire!

  3. That is so funny that they are the same author! Enjoy them!
