That's a great one! I've also had good success with The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing

I love using Percy Jackson ones for ancient Greece and Rome!

I teach 7th graders and during our Growth and Expansion unit, I read the book Weasel by Cynthia DeFelice our loud to my kids. The chapters are the perfect length and there’s just the perfect amount of heart racing adventure. It has a coming of age element and has a storyline set on the Ohio frontier that hits our Indian Removal Act learning targets as students quickly understand various perspectives- settlers, government, and American Indians. They LOVE the book and beg me to keep reading.

I have a phobia of deep water and of driving. Not sure if they are related, but I think it’s related to not trusting myself...like I don’t trust my body to save myself if I’m drowning and I don’t trust myself to not make a mistake while driving. I have taken swim lessons and I know how to swim/float and I have my driver’s license. I live in NYC so I haven’t had to drive much but recently I’ve had to drive and it’s a nerve-racking experience. I had to drive on the highway and it was scary!
