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 kid lit focus. We encourage everyone who participates to visit at least three of the other kid lit book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them.
Here is what jumped out of the pile in the past few weeks:
Triangle by Mac Barnett; Illustrated by Jon Klassen (Candlewick, March 2017) - The first in a new series by Barnett and Klassen features a friendship between Triangle and Square and a joke.
Rad Women Worldwide: Artists and Athletes, Pirates and Punks, and Other Revolutionaries Who Shaped History by Kate Schatz; Illustrated by Miriam Klein Stahl (Ten Speed Press, 2016) - A wonderful introduction to awesome women around the world.
Strong is the New Pretty: A Celebration of Girls Being Themselves by Kate T. Parker (Workman Publishing, January 2017) - A book for every young girl in your life. It was inspirational.
Lucia the Luchadora by Cynthia Leonor Garza; Illustrated by Alyssa Bermudez (POW!, March 2017) - Another book featuring a strong girl and what it means to be a hero.
The Case of the Stinky Stench: Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast #2 by Josh Funk; Illustrated by Brendan Kearney (Sterling, May 2, 2017) - Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast are back in another funny, and entertaining read aloud.
Full Moon Lore by Ellen Wahi; Illustrated by Ashley Stewart (Sleeping Bear Press, April 2017) - Beautifully illustrated look at the twelve months.
Abigail the Whale by Davide Cali; Illustrated by Sonja Bougaeva (Owlkids Books, September 16, 2016) - A read aloud that can open discussion about the power of how we perceive ourselves and the limits that may hinder us by what others say.
Explorers of the Wild by Cale Atkinson (Disney-Hyperion, 2016) - A boy and a bear that learn about friendship while enjoying a wild adventure.
I have held back some titles in order to share them on Tuesday and Wednesday.
In case you missed it...
