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 read and loved:
Far from the Tree by Robin Benway
A moving story about what it means to be a family, filled with wonderful characters that any reader would feel honored and privileged to spend their time with.

|“Big. Black. Beautiful. True.|
That was Sojourner.”
Ruth Bader Ginsburg: The Case of R.B.G Vs. Inequality by Jonah Winter, illustrated by Stacy Innerst
A wonderful picture book biography about one of the fiercest Supreme Court Justices there ever was... and continues to be.
Pink is for Boys by Robb Pearlman, illustrated by Eda Kaban
Simple text with a profound and important message: color belongs to no gender. Like what you like and don’t apologize for it.
