Blind Dates with Books – Perfect Book Matches!

We now have a Blind Date with a Book display and lots of students in Year 3 and 4 have been enjoying their Blind Date with a Book.

These students have all had successful blind dates and found a Perfect Book Match.

 Perfect  Book Match:  The Ivy and  Bean series by Annie Burrows

This series is a perfect match for me because the books are fun and there are lots of characters in the books.  They are short chapters so I can read them quickly.

 Perfect Book Match: The Ranger’s Apprentice series by John Flanagan

The Ranger’s Apprentice series is a perfect match for me because I love adventure and it’s lots of fun.  Will is always trying to be a good Ranger.  I also like that John Flanagan has kept me on the edge with the Rangers Apprentice series.

Perfect Book Match:  Dirtie Bertie by David Roberts

Dirty Bertie is a perfect match for me because it is funny. I like the way Bertie is disgusting and he does things he really can’t do like kiss a clean girl, look after a hamster and play the trumpet.  I certainly don’t want to be as dirty and disgusting as Bertie!

 Have YOU had a Perfect Book Match with your Blind Date?  We’d love you to tell us in the comments section!

  1. ‘The Ten Rules To Be A Detective’ was almost the perfect match for me because I like to sort things out. Like if my friends are upset I try to help sort it out. I like the part when these two boys don’t like this girl but when they try to sort the problem out they did not know the good things about her. I loved the part when they became friends. There is a big message to it – that was do not ever judge a person from….
    .how they look
    .how people tell bad things about that person
    .who they play with (if you don’t like them to)
    .how they live
    .how they learn
    and more.

    It was a perfect match for me !!!!

  2. Hi Madhu

    Thank you for telling us about “The Ten Rules to be a Detective”. Not a lot of people have read this book and I’m so pleased that you have not only read it, but really enjoyed it and it was a “Perfect Book Match”!

    There are definitely lots of lessons to learn from this story, as there are in many stories.

    It’s great when we read a book that really fits us. Sometimes you don’t want that book to end!

    Happy reading Madhu,

    Miss Y 🙂

  3. Dear Miss Y,
    The blind date with a book is a fun idea! It looks like some of the students are enjoying trying something new.
    Andy Griffith’s books are never here in the library! The 13 and 26 storey books are always checked out! Thanks again for them.
    It was fun to see you are having some MO fun! I hope those pigeon pictures come out great!
    Keep reading!

  4. Hi Mrs Hembree

    The students have definitely been having fun with their blind dates and trying new books.

    I’m so glad your students are enjoying the Andy Griffiths books! They must “get” his humour too!

    I’ve posted some of our Pigeon pictures on the blog tonight. The Grade Ones had lots of fun doing them. We are becoming big MO fans…

    Happy reading!

    Miss Y 🙂
