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 loved:
What Grew in Larry's Garden by Laura Alary, illustrated by Kass Reich
This book had my heart. A little girl named Grace likes to help her neighbor Larry with his beautiful backyard garden and throughout their friendship, they find ways to problem-solve not only in the garden, but in the community as well.
This Old Dog by Martha Brockenbrough, illustrated by Gabriel Alborozo
A succinct, yet stunningly written and heartfelt book that reminds us all what a privilege it is to love an old dog.
Saturdays are for Stella by Candy Wellins, illustrated by Charlie Eve Ryan
|George loves that he gets to spend every Saturday with his Grandma Stella. They do all sorts of fun (and sometimes not-so-fun) things together. Until one day Stella is no longer there to spend every Saturday with. And now George has decided to cross out all the Saturdays on his calendar. That is, until a new Stella enters his life. A story that is a testament to the beauty and heartbreak of the cyclical nature of life.|
