Jumanji by Chris Van Allsburg
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Another modern classic of modern children's books that I had never read, I had the opportunity to meet Chris Van Allsburg at a book signing and picked up a copy. It's a cute story, but I think it could definitely be expanded into something more. (I've seen the movie, and while that was fun, I think it went a little too over the top.) Either way, for kids this would clearly be a great story to be read aloud with parents.

April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!
