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.
Hey everyone. It's been a while. I am on Instagram more these days than I am my blog so feel free to follow me @BethShaum (especially if you also love pugs, which I also post a lot of pictures of).
Here's what I've finished reading recently:
This Book of Mine by Sarah Stewart, illustrated by David Small
|A tender book that considers what it means to love a book. The spare text says so much in so few words and David Small’s nuanced illustrations pick up where the text leaves off.|
A Boy Like You by Frank Murphy, illustrated by Kayla Harren
A girl that celebrates and questions what it means to be masculine, challenging those toxic tropes we’ve created in our culture.
Skulls! by Blair Thornburgh, illustrated by Scott Campbell
A picture book that reminds us to love and respect the safe place we keep our brains. Love the humorous, whimsical, yet only slightly morbid illustration style.
It's Your World Now! by Barry Falls
Just Because by Mac Barnett, illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault
