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.
My Monday posts are generally just a highlight of what I've been reading during the week so if you'd like to see all that I've been reading, follow my Goodreads page.
Last week I finished reading with my ears:
The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well by Meik Wiking
Picture books that stood out in the pile last week:
The Rain Stomper by Addie Boswell, illustrated by Eric Velasquez
A young girl, upset that the parade has been spoiled by pouring rain, decides to march to the beat of the thunder and create her own parade.
Allie's Garden by Sabra Chebby, illustrated by Marla Osborn
Fun rhyming verse and adorable illustrations made of vegetables make this board book perfect for any budding baby foodie. My only criticism is that it didn't seem long enough. The story ended just as it was gaining momentum.
I Like, I Don't Like by Anna Baccelliere, illustrated by Ale + Ale
A jarring book that should be read to kids with plenty of discussion and room for questions.
When Snow Falls by Linda Booth Sweeney, illustrated by Jana Christy
Currently (still) reading with my eyes:
Alexander Hamilton: Revolutionary by Martha Brockenbrough
Currently reading with my ears:
Audacity: How Barack Obama Defied His Critics and Created a Legacy That Will Prevail by Jonathan Chait
I'm hoping this book will give me some, well, hope. Because we're in some very dark political times right now.
