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. Cover images via Goodreads unless otherwise noted.
Last Week on the Blog:
Last Week in Books:
We (me and my kindergarten and first grade students) enjoyed our latest Lauren Castillo books It Is Not Time for Sleeping and Happy Like Soccer as part of the Global Read Aloud. The Storyteller has some very unique art work. Steamboat School was an interesting look into history. The Problem with Being Slightly Heroic is a fun middle grade sequel to The Grand Plan to Fix Everything.
Lucy and Linh was a great contemporary young adult book and As Time Went By was a strange little book, but nice.
This Week in Books:
I'm reading the newest Grace Lin book and am loving it. I just got quite a few books in from the library so am looking forward to reading the graphic novel Snow White and Beholding Bee also. I wish you a great week full of reading.
