Kellee Moye, of Unleashing Readers, and Jen Vincent, of Teach Mentor Texts decided to give It's Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children's literature - picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit - join us! We love this meme and think you will, too. We encourage everyone who participates to visit at least three of the other kidlit book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them.
If you want to know more about what I've been reading, visit my Goodreads shelf.
On the Blog:
Last 2 Weeks in Books (I was at a conference last weekend):
My favorites were:
Out of Wonder - a great collection of poems inspired by famous poets
Sachiko - a narrative non-fiction account of the bombing of Nagasaki
Rad Women Worldwide - a non-fiction biography collection highlighting a diverse group of women
Flowers for Sarajevo - an account of a bombing in Sarajevo & the musician who honored the victims through music
The Holy Tortilla and a Pot of Beans - a fun Latina short story collection
The Coming Week:
I just started On the Edge of Gone and have several lined up for my Spring Break, but I am packing up my house to move down the road to a smaller house, so I'm not sure how much I will get to read. I wish you a great week!
