It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. Kellee Moye, of Unleashing Readers, and Jen Vincent of Teach Mentor Texts decided to give It's Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. We encourage everyone who participates to visit at least three of the other kidlit book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them.
If you have read my Happy New Year post, you will know the second half of 2017 was a bit of a challenge for me. As a result, I haven't been doing my typical IMWAYR posts. It's a new year and I am working to get back into a regular blogging routine and participating in communities that I love. My titles for today are limited since I will be sharing some tomorrow and others on Wednesday as part of the weekly challenges (see below).
Here are some of the books that I have been reading recently...
One Last Word: Wisdom From the Harlem Renaissance by Nikki Grimes (Bloomsbury, January 3, 2017) - A beautiful collection of poems to celebrate the Harlem Renaissance.
A Greyhound, A Groundhog by Emily Jenkins; Illustrated by Chris Appelhans (Schwartz & Wade, January 3, 2017) - This tongue-twister read aloud will be one to get a few chuckles.
I Am Not a Chair by Ross Burach (HarperCollins, February 14, 2017) - A humorous read aloud about the confusion between a giraffe and a chair.
The Princess and The Warrior: A Tale of Two Volcanoes by Duncan Tonatiuh (Harry N. Abrams, September 2016) - A fascinating legend about two of Mexico's volcanoes.
Preaching to the Chickens by Jabari Asim; Illustrated by E.B. Lewis (Nancy Paulsen Books, October 2016) - A wonderful picture book biography about John Lewis.

#Road2Reading Challenge with Michele Knott of Mrs. Knott's Book Nook
Recently, I discovered that for many of us, we rely on the same few early readers and transitional chapter book series. Michele and I hope to introduce everyone to many new books over the course of the year. Check out the first post here.
