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.
This past week was a huge release week and so many great books came out. Some of my favorite picture book authors came out with new titles, which I had to read and share. Also, I found a few new ones that were just a lot of fun. I am also reading Amulet, Vol 6: Escape from Lucien by Kazu Kibuishi, and The Fourteenth Goldfish by Jennifer L. Holm, but not quite finished with them yet.
Here is what jumped out of the stack from this week::
Three Little Peas by Marine Rivoal (Enchanted Lion Books, September 2, 2014) - I have been waiting for this one to come out. It would be a great read aloud in Pre-K to First.
Aw, Nuts! by Rob McClurkan (HarperCollins, August 26, 2014) - This just made me laugh so I needed to include it here.
Tiny: The Invisible World of Microbes by Nicola Davies (Candlewick, August 26, 2014) - Nicola Davies is one of my automatic must read authors. A good introduction to microbes for children.
Vanilla Ice Cream by Bob Graham (Candlewick, August 26, 2014) - Graham is another author that I put on an automatic, must read list when he has a new book. There is just something special about his books. He makes the simplest thing seem incredibly special.
The Story Starts Here! by Caroline Merola (Owlkids Books, September 15, 2014) - This one was a new find for me and it caused me to laugh out loud at certain scenes. Parents will especially love certain lines, and this will be a hit for storytime.
So, what are you reading?
