It's Monday! What are you reading? 2-19-18

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.

I recently finished reading: 
The Only Road by Alexandra Diaz
At the Edge of the Universe by Shaun David Hutchinson
I really enjoyed both of these books. 

Picture books that stood out in the pile: 

Warts and All: A Books of Unconditional Love by Lori Haskins Houran, illustrated by Sydney Hanson
If you’re a middle school teacher, read this book to your students. It’s a sweet, adorable book with a powerful message that this age needs to hear from adults.

Let the Children March by Monica Clark-Robinson, illustrated by Frank Morrison
This book feels oh so timely. 

Currently reading with my ears: 

Right Where You Left Me by Calla Devlin


  1. I liked The Only Road very much, and have Let The Children March, need to read it. I looked up Right Where You Left Me, and it sounds good, but a long time to wait! Have a good day, Beth!

  2. I'll be in the look out for Warts & All. I love picture books that appeal to older readers.

  3. I had The Only Road from the library before Christmas, but never got to it. I'll have to add it back to my list. At the Edge of the Universe sounds like a fascinating read. Let The Children March is on my list. I hope it doesn't take to long for my library to bring it in.

  4. Oooh, The Only Road looks like a very interesting plot line. And I'd really like to read Let the Children March with my kiddos. It may be a while before we get At the Edge of the Universe -- very small, secluded town, so I have a wait longer than most. Have a great reading week!

  5. I really liked Warts and All. I think kids desperately need the messages about undconditional love that this picture book shares. Have a great week!

  6. My library still does not have a copy of Warts and All. It sounds like one I want to find!

  7. Oh wow, Let The Children March is indeed very very timely. I will put that in my Goodreads list.
