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.
Well, it seems that my professional reading continues to dominate my reading life.....
Here is a stack of what I have been re-visiting while I put together some slides for a training on Word Study.
Here are some picture books that jumped out of the stack this week...
Tony by Ed Galing; Illustrated by Erin Stead (Roaring Brook Press, February 7, 2017) - I love Erin Stead's illustrations in this charming story of friendship.
TouchThinkLearn: Fly by Xavier Deneux (Chronicle Books, March 7, 2017) - An board book for very young readers who will enjoy moving the chick and other pieces of the book from one page to the other.
Over and Under the Pond by Kate Messner; Illustrated by Christopher Silas Neal (Chronicle Books, March 7, 2017) - A new book in Kate Messner's series Over and Under series and not to be missed.
The Tree A Fable by Neal Layton (Candlewick Press, February 7, 2017) - What happens when you intend to build a house in a spot where a tree exists? One couple comes up with an unusual alternative.
And I have been listening to the audiobook for In the Country We Love: My Family Divided by Diane Guerrero with Michelle Burford for next week's book club. Given the current climate around immigrants and deportations, it is quite timely.
In case you missed these posts....
So, what are you reading?
