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:
Loving Vs. Virginia: A Documentary Novel of the Landmark Civil Rights Caseby Patricia Hruby Powell, illustrated by Shadra Strickland
Baby Monkey, Private Eye by Brian Selznick and David Serlin
A delightful new book from Brian Selznick that combines the visual beauty of a picture book with the ease and repetition of text of an early reader and the length of a chapter book. Not to mention an adorable gumshoe on the case of stolen jewels, pizza, clown noses, and spaceships.
Love by Matt de la Pena, illustrated by Loren Long
This book is everything I hoped it would be.
Bagel in Love by Natasha Wing, illustrated by Helen Dardik
Clever and cheeky food puns that won't make you groan.
Penguins Don't Wear Sweaters! by Marikka Tamura, illustrated by Daniel Rieley
|Don't miss the backmatter that explains the premise of this story and why even the best human intentions can have harmful consequences.
My Pillow Keeps Moving by Laura Gehl, illustrated Christopher Weyant
Delightful and absurd
Still reading this week:
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
