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.
Hi friends! It's been a minute. Walden committee reading has me consumed so I don't have time to post every week, but I'm here now and have tons of reading to share with you.
I recently finished reading:
On the Come Up by Angie Thomas
|While I found The Hate U Give more compelling, I also found this book a fantastic follow-up to THUG. I’m actually looking more forward to this movie adaption than THUG because the music is going to be fire!|
Cardboard Kingdom by Chad Sell
Picture books I've read and loved:
Olive & Pekoe: In Four Short Walks by Jacky Davis and Giselle Potter
A quiet story about 2 dogs who are unlikely friends, one is young and energetic, the other old and slow, yet they still manage to be good friends and stick together.
Another by Christian Robinson
I love that Christian Robinson’s illustrations have a childlike whimsy while also managing to be sophisticated at the same time. Those qualities are especially on display in this wordless picture book where his illustrations do all the heavy lifting and show us just what a brilliant storyteller he truly is.
What a Cold Needs by Barbara Bottner, illustrated by Chris Sheban
I don’t know how, but Barbara Bottner and Chris Sheban found a way for me to wish I could be a sick kid again and spend all day reading, sleeping, and snuggling with pets and parents.
Because by Mo Willems
Music can change you. Your life can change the course of others’ lives for the better. This book is one is a palpable experience of the ways in which music can change you. I may have cried whilst reading.
Which One Doesn't Belong? Playing with Shapes by Christopher Danielson
