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.
Here are some fun book-related TikToks I made last week:
@bibliophilebeth When this is the weather in July, you mark yourself as unavailable in your calendar and sit outside and read #librariansoftiktok #schoollibrarian #booktok ♬ original sound - catherineoharasbebe
Last week I reviewed:
Emotional Inheritance: A Therapist, Her Patients, and the Legacy of Trauma by Galit Atlas, PhD
Last week I read and loved:
Hummingbird by Natalie Lloyd
There’s a teacher in the story that says a pen is a direct line to a person’s heart. Well, Natalie Lloyd’s pen draws a whole lot of lines to readers’ hearts.
The Queen of Kindergarten by Derrick Barnes, illustrated by Vanessa Brantley-Newman
|MJ, with her tiara and rainbow-colored braids, absolutely slays on her first day of kindergarten... by being helpful and kind and having a great time while doing it.|
Like by Annie Barrows, illustrated by Leo Espinosa
A picture book that brilliantly sets up the thesis that humans are more alike than different by showing the ways we are alike/different to other objects. A great read aloud for Preschool-1st grade classes.
Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole by Susan Cain
Currently reading with my ears:
I Can Make This Promise by Christine Day
