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 reviewed:
A Cooked-Up Fairy Tale by Penny Parker Klostermann, illustrated by Ben Mantle
My favorite picture books from last week:
Nothing Rhymes with Orange by Adam Rex
Full review coming soon! Spoiler alert: LOVED IT!
All the Way to Havana by Margarita Engle, illustrated by Mike Curato
A book that celebrates family, community, and the ingenuity of the Cuban people.say
Santa Rex by Molly Idle
Despite Rex's and his dino friends' destructive nature, Christmas just wouldn't be the same without being able to celebrate with them.
Currently (still) reading with my eyes:
Alexander Hamilton: Revolutionary by Martha Brockenbrough
I've been reading this one for a while. It's really dense, but it's super interesting and it's not nearly as difficult to get through as the Ron Chernow book.
Currently reading with my ears:
Alex and Eliza:A Love Story by Melissa de la Cruz
