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.
Last week I read and enjoyed:
What Is Given from the Heart by Patricia McKissack, illustrated by April Harrison
A beautiful story about a young boy who has lost much but still finds a way to give. I can see this book being in Caldecott contention
Vroom! by Barbara McClintock
Young girls can dream of being race car drivers too.
Field Trip to the Moon by John L. Hare
|On a field trip to the moon, one young student gets left behind and makes some new friends. A fantastic wordless picture book.
