It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. Jen from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers have adapted it to focus on Picture Books to Young Adult Books.
In addition to it being a "What Are You Reading?" post, I am also celebrating Picture Book Month. Below you will find some book adventures from last week and some upcoming reviews.
Did you see my post on John Rocco and his new book Blizzard? If not, check out the interview here?
I mentioned last Wednesday that Jeanette Winter has a new picture book biography out. Actually a 2-in-1. It features Malala Yousafzai on one side and Iqbal Masih on the other side. The story tells about the bravery about these young people and the stances they took. Though they had different outcomes for each one, the stories are powerful.
Malala A Brave Girl From Pakistan/Iqbal A Brave Boy From Pakistan by Jeanette Winter (Beach Lane Books, November 2014)
This book would pair up nicely with Dear Malala, We Stand With You by Rosemary McCarney (Note: The book also has the other name of Every Day is Malala Day)
On Friday, I had the honor of hosting and introducing author, Julie Berry at her West Coast Book Launch for The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place.
Check out the book trailer for the book:
Finally, I received a copy of A Christmas Wish for Corduroy by B.G. Hennessy (Viking Juvenile, October 2014). Corduroy came to a school with me on Friday so I could tell the kids about him and his newest book.
So, what are you reading?
