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.
Here is what jumped out of the book stack this week.....
The Bear Who Wasn't There by LeUyen Pham (Roaring Brook Press, 2016) - I love this book. Lots of fun and love the metafiction.
The Banana Leaf Ball: How Play Can Change the World by Katie Smith Milway; Illustrated by Shane Evans (Kids Can Press, April 4, 2017) - We need books like this to open the world to young readers. This book also adds an element of creating friendship in difficult circumstances.
The Green Umbrella by Jackie Azua Kramer; Illustrated by Maral Sassouni (North South Books) - A sweet story of accommodation and friendship.
Use Your Imagination by Nicola Byrne (Nosy Crow, 2015) - A fun read about using your imagination to create a story and the twist at the end of the story.
Octo-Man and the Headless Monster (The Escapades of Clint McCool) by Jane Kelley; Illustrated by Jessika Von Innerebner (Grosset & Dunlap, May 9, 2017) - A transitional chapter book filled with imagination, humor, and adventure.
A Rambler Steals Home by Carter Higgins (HMH Books for Young Readers, February 28, 2017) - I am so excited for Carter Higgins and her debut novel. More about this one to come on the blog.
