It's Monday! What are you reading? 1-11-16
It's Monday! What are you reading? Is a wonderful community of readers, teachers, and librarians. Hosted by Jen over at Teach Mentor Texts along with Kellee and Ricki at Unleashing Readers, participants share their reading adventures from the past week along with their reading plans for the week ahead.
Happy ALA Youth Media Awards day! Yesterday I wrote my predictions for winners. I was also the guest poster on Nerdy Book Club yesterday: Top Ten Books That Colored My Whitewashed World.
Last week I finished reading:
Night on Fire by Ronald Kidd
A solid, page-turning novel about the Civil Rights era and the Freedom Riders
I finished reading with my ears:
Juba! by Walter Dean Myers
I just didn't connect with this one. I have a feeling I was missing some things by listening to the audio as opposed to reading the book, although the audiobook narrator was entertaining to listen to.
Picture books I read last week:
Water is Water by Miranda Paul, illustrated by Jason Chin
Nerdy Birdy by Aaron Reynolds, illustrated by Matt Davies
Meet the Dullards by Sara Pennpacker, illustrated by Daniel Salmieri
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
Currently reading with my ears:
Connect the Stars by Marisa de los Santos and David Teague
