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.
Last Week on Blogs:
Tattoos in Picture Books at the Nerdybookclub Blog
Here are my favorite two books from the past week. I read a few others, but these are the standouts.
Best in Snow - Gorgeous photos!
Cloth Lullaby - Lovely illustrations in a superb pb bio.
One Native Life - I'm really loving this one.
He shares about his life through brief powerful stories.
Next Week: I plan to hit a few more books from my #MustReadin2016 list (a few Stonewall Award/honor books) and Bad Indians. I hope to get to History is All You Left Me and The Hate U Give. I've been saving them for my flight later in the week. Have a great week.
