It's Monday! What are you reading? 3-12-18

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.

Last week I read and loved:

Vincent Comes Home by Jessixa & Aaron Bagley 
Vincent lives on a cargo ship and had never set foot on land. He’s traveled all over the world and has been to every place but one. When he overhears crew members talking about Home, he wants to go there. He’s never been Home before and wants to experience it.

The Magician's Hat by Malcolm Mitchell, illustrated by Joanne Lew-Vriethoff
A beautiful message about the magic of books.

Somebunny Loves Me by Parry Gripp
A sweet book about the love and beauty of owning a pet, whether, fluffy, feathery, or scaly. 

The Great Puppy Invasion by Alastair Heim, illustrated by Kim Smith
In a town that outlaws fun, when puppies invade, terror abounds. But also cuteness. And you can only resist cuteness for so long.

Currently Reading: 

Me and Marvin Gardens by Amy Sarig King

Currently reading with my ears:

Mirror, Mirror by Cara Delevinge 


  1. Jessixa Bagley writes such beautiful stories. Vincent Comes Home is new to me, so thanks for that, Beth. I'll look for it and The Magician's Hat too!

  2. I'll be really interested in hearing what you think of Me and Marvin Gardens. I'm hearing good things and it's on my TBR list. Have a great week!

  3. So excited that you are reading Me and Marvin Gardens. I really thought this was a special book!

  4. The Magician's Hat caught my eye. I am intrigued that a celebrity has written a memoir - so very young at that! Looking forward to reading your thoughts about it.

  5. Me and Marvin Gardens Is on my to read list. My library even has a copy. I just don't know how to make time to read everything on that list! I hope they bring in Vincent Comes Home soon.
