The Past Week:
This is Sadie is just as wonderful as other people were saying. I love this celebration of imagination and creativity. Sadie stole my heart. My Cousin Momo is another that is embracing creativity and a unique personality. Momo also teaches readers to learn from others. Lines Everywhere is a playful look at what a line is and where we can see lines in everyday life. I can see it as a springboard to drawing. Young readers will enjoy the "line" that is represented by a cut out space to see through. Sea Rex is another fun book featuring this adorable dinosaur and friends. This time they're at the beach. The Lonely Typewriter tells of a typewriter that has been hidden away in an attic and finally gets to come out and be useful again. This was the perfect book for me this week since I found a 60+ year old manual typewriter this week at school. It was part of my celebrations this week.
Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge post. They are all quite good.
The Letter Q: Queer Writers' Notes to Their Younger Selves is exactly what the subtitle says. Queer writers have shared the letters they would have written to themselves when they were younger. It's excellent to hear these voices. This is definitely one of those books that can be a mirror or window. Love Edy is a contemporary romance with a few twists. I'll be reviewing it at Rich in Color on Wednesday and we'll be giving away a copy of the book too, so be sure and check that out.
The Coming Week:
We'll be visiting the Anne Frank museum in Amsterdam later this summer so I am re-reading her diary and a photo essay about her. Summer of Chasing Mermaids is for review and the rest are just for fun. I hope you have a great week filled with reading.
