Welcome back Laura Z from Seattle, Washington! One of our most popular readers is back to treat you to her dulcet tones and fantastic voices. Thank you Laura - and happy April to all our listeners!
Here we go! Starting the 2nd Harry Potter book today. There are 18 chapters, so we will have 18 episodes for you over the next 18 days. I'm super excited because I've actually never read this book!
Enjoy and thank you JK Rowling for the permission to record for our students during e-learning.
I. Love. This. Book. And so will you. It's nothing short of magical.
Thank you to Peter Brown for writing this instant classic about robots, nature, being a mom, adventure, danger, understanding and most of all, connecting to each other.
Here we go! The Wild Robot.
Here we are, at the end of One-Third Nerd - what will become of Cupcake, Dakota, Izzy, Dodge, Moses and Liam?
I hope you enjoyed this book. It has the best illustrations throughout, which really add to the story - if you ever get a chance, grab a copy and check them out!
COMING UP NEXT, STARTING SATURDAY, MARCH 28:
THE WILD ROBOT, by Peter Brown. (A modern masterpiece!)
Yesterday, our guest reader was in northern England. Today, sail back across the Atlantic and soar clear across the US to gorgeous Eugene, Oregon, to hear from another lifelong friend and Harry Potter fan, Tris O.
Enjoy and Go Ducks!
I know, I know, I keep saying this but seriously: Don't Try this Stuff at Home! Dakota, sheesh. On the other hand, she might just be on to something...
Today, at last, we have a real live British person reading our chapter! My old friend Leanne E, from Leeds, North Yorkshire, England will delight your ears with her wonderful reading. Thank you Leanne. Also, kids, check out this link to see how magical North Yorkshire is: https://www.yorkshire.com/places/north-yorkshire
Geography lesson included free of charge : )
One Third Nerd, Chapters 19 & 20: Licking Toilet Seats and Other Problems & Being Cardboard Must be Nice
Time is running out for raising the money to take Cupcake to the vet to solve the peeing-in-the-apartment problem.
Thank you again to yesterday's guest reader Alex C from New Jersey. Tomorrow, fingers crossed, we will have a guest reader from the other side of the world! Stay tuned...
This is another action packed chapter - enjoy!
Again, don't try this at home. Microwave safety everyone - it's important!
Meet Alex C, today's guest reader from Summit, New Jersey. He is a real pro - you're going to love this reading. As a professional actor (Law and Order anyone?) and a dad, he's the perfect combination to do a fantastic reading. Enjoy!
One Third Nerd, Chapters 14, 15, & 16: Superheroes Don’t Have Sisters, Counting the Dead Ones, & Skittles Rule
Tennis anyone? (well, not really and not here in Chicago because it's been SNOWING all afternoon). But Liam gets an invite to play, so his social life is looking up! Have a great week, Mrs. M
One Third Nerd, Chapters 11, 12 & 13: A Bed Wetter or a Thief?, They Scared by Themselves, & Doggy Diapers
My apologies in advance for cracking up while reading Chapter 13. The image of Dakota and Liam trying to get a diaper on Cupcake is just too funny. Happy Sunday!
Two chapters today! And probably every day from here on out. Dakota does something NO little sister should ever do to her siblings today....enjoy.
Woohoo, it's Saturday! Welcome to our listeners from Germany. We truly are all one family in this world, and certainly our 22-year global love of Harry Potter clearly demonstrates that. Hope you all have a lovely day with your family - thanks for letting me be a part of it too.
Cupcake just can't stop peeing on the floor, Dakota sulks, and we meet the fun-loving 47s.
What do doctors do when they are not treating patients? They read to you of course. I'm pleased to welcome today's guest reader, Dr. Will from Boston. Dr. Will is an orthopedic surgeon, a dad, a great human being.
From Boston for all of you - take it away Dr. Will.
Dakota in the school library with pink glitter wristbands? Sounds a little embarrassing...
See you tomorrow!
Happy Wednesday! Today's chapter is read by me, Mrs M. I gotta say that a lot of unusual things continue to unfold in this chapter, and there are so many wacky characters. After 44 minutes of reading aloud, I was pretty dizzy.
But I do it all for you : ) Enjoy. (Tomorrow: another guest reader!)
Dakota writes apologies, we meet mom, we get a glimpse into Dodge's house, and I do a really bad Australian-American accent. Have a happy St. Patrick's Day!
Uh oh, the police have arrived at Liam and Dakota's house. Busted!
And how about a new book: One Third Nerd by Gennifer Choldenko. (She wrote Al Capone Does My Shirts). Here's a link to learn more about this book - https://www.amazon.com/One-Third-Nerd-Gennifer-Choldenko-ebook/dp/B07DSZYD43
Kids if you love dogs, this book is for you. Here we go!
For the next month, I'll be posting a new chapter every day! Read along or just listen. I'll try to do justice to the many characters and the exquisite writing. (Feel free to laugh at my British accents!)
Enjoy and stay healthy,
