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.
This week I wasn't able to get through that many books but the ones I did read were outstanding.
Here's what jumped out of the stack...
Dreamers by Yuyi Morales (Neal Porter Books, September 4, 2018) - Mark your calendars or pre-order this title. It is such a beautiful book. Given the news lately, this book is well-timed. Morales talks about her own experience coming over the boarder with her infant son and how she experienced life as an immigrant. The book also celebrates the role of the library in her life.
Turning Pages: My Life Story by Sonia Sotomayor; Illustrated by Lulu Delacre (Philomel, September 4, 2018) - Here is another book to pre-order or mark-to-read. Sotomayor tells about her life growing up and what led to her becoming a Supreme Court Justice. I love that she honors libraries and their role in her life.
Niblet & Ralph by Zachariah OHora (Dial Books, June 5, 2018) - Always happy to see a new book by OHora and especially one about cats.
The Wall in the Middle of the Book by Jon Agee (October 2, 2018) - Agee has a way to create a book with humor and multiple layers. Mark your calendar for this one as well.
In case you missed these posts from last week...
