A Map of Days by Ransom Riggs

A Map of Days by Ransom Riggs was published in 2018 and is the fourth book of Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children. I read this in one sitting and stayed up way too late to do so. In this installment, Jacob has gone home to Florida, but his parents think he's lost his mind and are going to have him committed to a mental hospital.

Miss Peregrine and her charges come to his rescue and now they all must fight battles in current day and past America. Of course there are still time loops in America, and Jacob learns even more about his grandfather and the dangers he fought for peculiars in America - a place that lacks ymbrynes to protect them. I love the growth in the children as they fight to grow up and become autonomous from the ymbrynes. I like the new characters that are introduced and look forward the next installment.

This series is a perfect Hi/lo series because of the white space, pictures, and content matter for older teens.

Alysen brought over this cute book for the NICU. I love getting Spanish books. It's important for babies to be read to in their home language.

Read to a child today even if that child is you.

Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.
