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.
I recently read and loved:
When I See Red by Britta Teckentrup
|A book that reflects on the importance of embracing anger as a healthy emotion when it is worked through in healthy ways. I love that the message of this book is that no longer should women and girls show only pleasant emotions, but that anger is helpful and can even make you powerful.|
Dear Librarian by Lydia M. Sigwarth, illustrated Romina Galotta
The story this book is based on was featured on NPR's This American life. If you love libraries and librarians, this book will make you tear up.
Change Sings by Amanda Gorman, illustrated by Loren Long
A Song of Frutas by Margarita Engle, illustrated by Sara Palacios
