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.
These are the picture books I really enjoyed last week:
The Story of Rock and The Story of Rap illustrated by Lindsey Sagar
|Adorable rhyming baby board books for the budding musicians in your lives. My only criticism is that the author and illustrator are not mentioned. The illustrator is listed in very tiny print on the back of the book with the copyright information, but authors and illustrators should get a prominent place somewhere on the book.|
The New Neighbors by Sarah McIntyre
I need to add The Story of Rock and The Story of Rap to my children's book list for my elementary music class -- these are new to me! How Sweet the Sound: The Story of Amazing Grace also looks wonderful -- this song is an important one in my family and my uncle had me sing this at his funeral. I hope you're enjoying Dry. I couldn't put that one down. Have a wonderful reading week, Beth!ReplyDelete
The New Neighbors does sound like one to share with a group, starting a good discussion! I loved Dry, hope you do, too. And still haven't read Amazing Grace, but will. How nice that you got to meet Carole Boston Weatherford. That's one thing I miss about no longer going to conferences. I agree about the Pass Go story. What a shame she lost the money she deserved. Thanks Beth!ReplyDelete
I've seen The New Neighbors listed on a few posts lately. I've got it on my list to find - the libraries don't have it ordered yet.ReplyDelete
I hope you're enjoying Dry. It was my first Shusterman book, I really enjoyed it!
I'm going to be looking forward to reading what your thoughts are on Cardboard Kingdom. It was one of the finalists for the Cybil graphic award this year. I've read about the story behind Amazing Grace. It is one of my favourite hymns. I'll be looking for a copy of The New Neighbors. It sounds like an important book.ReplyDelete

I too enjoyed the Amazing Grace book. Carole Boston Weatherford does such an excellent job with nonfiction. I will watch for the Monopoly book though it will likely make me angry on her behalf. Yikes.ReplyDelete
