- (Centre County Reads - CDT)We all know that I will read anything but even I hadn't thought about reading the sky until I started the new Breakfast Serial in Sunday's Centre Daily Times. Jamie, the main character, not only sees images in the clouds, he sees entire stories. Right then, I started watching the sky and it has been especially beautiful this week. (okay, yes, it was blue and white and we know what that means). But, WOW, there were the biggest fluffiest clouds I have ever seen! My response to that was to pick up a couple of cloud books from the library.view
- Read the Avi story, Reading the Sky, in the Centre Daily Times each Sunday and Tuesday until the end of July. This is the story of young boy who can see wonderful stories in the cloud formations, but also a tale of a bank heist and the effort to get away by jumping out of a plane (remember this true story from some years back?). The robber thinks no one will be watching the sky. Avi is an award-winning author who started Breakfast Serials because he had enjoyed reading stories in the newspaper when he was younger.more info
