It's Monday! What are you reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. Jen Vincent over at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee Moye from Unleashing Readers decided to put a children's and YA spin on it and they invite anyone with an interest to join in. You can participate by creating your post then visit one of their sites to add your site. Finally, visit at least three participant blogs and comment to spread the love.
If you want to know more about what I am reading, visit me at my Goodreads shelf. Images via Goodreads unless otherwise noted.
My blog posts this week were: Franklin School Friends Review, Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge, Celebrate and Let's Salsa/Bailemos Salsa Review
It's a brief recap today. The ones I really, really liked: Shining Star: The Anna May Wong Story, Grandfather's Journey, Baby Flo, and Tea with Milk. My Heartbeat and The Red Pencil were also quite good. A Rule is to Break was quite funny though I had mixed feelings about it. Many of the others were okay too, but didn't quite zing as much.
I did enjoy several of the poems from Indivisible: Poems for Social Justice. Here is one of them.
The Coming Week:
I will probably read The Revolution of Evelyn Serrano after those and a few Printz books. I had started working on the Caldecotts again, but may focus on the Pura Belpre books instead since they would go toward my Diversity on the Shelf Challenge and the Latin@s in Kid Lit Challenge also. Besides, I only have about 60 more to read for that unlike the 150+ for the Caldecotts. I love that summer offers so many opportunities for reading. What are you reading this week?
