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


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.

It's been a few weeks since I've posted to the blog. Here are the highlights of some great things I've read recently.


Hip-Hop Lollipop by Susan McElroy Montanari, illustrated by Brian Pinkney
A fun, rhythmical romp through a young girl's bedtime. 


The Size of the Truth by Andrew Smith
Remember Sam Abernathy from Stand Off? Yep. The Size of the Truth is about THAT Sam Abernathy. And it's as wonderful and lovable and endearing as you would expect it to be. 


The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo 
A subtle, complex story about love, friendship, family, and what it means to be real. 


Puddin' by Julie Murphy
Even better than the first book.
