I have decided to share a book a day that I have read everyday until I make it through the whole alphabet. Because this is day one today's letter is A (duh) and the book of the day is "A Wrinkle in Time" by Madeline L'Engle. I read this for the first time in elementary school and fell in love with the story. If you are unfamiliar with the story, it follows thirteen year old Meg as she struggles in school while all the adults in her lives are convinced she is just a stubborn child. Everyone in her family is scientifically inclined and brilliant- including her father who is nowhere to be found. Meg discovers the theory that her father was working on at the time of his disappearance and along with some others sets out to solve the mystery and find her father. It's a great book, that is being turned into a movie that will come out in the spring of 2018. This is also the first science fiction book that I can remember reading. Have you read this one? Or the following books in the series? The picture is courtesy of Wikipedia.

I read this when i was in ES. I liked it very much. I think it was one of the best books I read as a child. One scene I still remember from the book was the dinos fighting. That was a powerfully written scene. Kids are going to love the movie, and I bet some adults will too.
