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.
Check out the posts over the next couple of days for additional titles. Here is what jumped out of the pile this week...
Max and Bird by Ed Vere (September 5th 2017 by Sourcebooks Jabberwocky) - I love cats and I love Max. This time Max and Bird learn about perseverance and friendship.
Daddy Long Legs by Nadine Brun-Cosme; Illustrated by Aurélie Guillerey (May 2nd 2017 by Kids Can Press) - Whether the question is "Do you love me?" or "How will you come and pick me up?" young children are still learning about how dependable a parent will be. This book the father shares all the ways he will come to pick up his child even if the car does not work.
Flora and the Ostrich: An Opposites Book by Molly Idle (September 5th 2017 by Chronicle Books) - I really love Molly Idle's Flora books and this is probably one of my new favorites and very well done as a book of opposites.
Creepy Pair of Underwear by Aaron Reynolds; Illustrated by Peter Brown (August 22nd 2017 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers) - I started out wondering about this book and whether it would be too scary but by the end I was laughing out loud. May want to do a preview of the book before sharing it with any children that may scare easy but know that the ending wraps this one up perfectly.
