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.
Last Week in Books:
I really enjoyed The Sound Jazz Makes. Carole Boston Weatherford did a great history of jazz in simple text. Frankie is super funny and is about a foster dog settling in with another dog. They don't get along at first. Chavela and the Magic Bubble is fun and takes place partially in the rain forest so it will work well for our first grade unit about rain forests. I'm excited to read it this week along with making bubbles. I also really appreciated Girl Rising.
The Coming Week:
I still have 2 CDs of 12 to listen to this week with Afterworlds. I also had to pause the Spider-Man book for a bit. I hope to finish both this week. I'm not sure what else I'll be reading though. Have a great week!
