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's what jumped out of the pile these past couple of weeks....
The Rough Patch by Brian Lies (Greenwillow Books, August 14, 2018) - What a beautiful story of loss, grief, and new beginnings. The illustrations are lovely.
Good Dog by Cori Doerrfeld (HarperCollins, August 7, 2018) - A simple and wonderful story about a little dog and the family that rescues him.
Eat Pete by Michael Rex (Nancy Paulsen Books, August 14, 2018) - A humorous story of friendship and why eating a friend might not be such a good idea.
Stop, Go, Yes, No! A Story of Opposites by Mike Twohy (Balzer & Bray, August 14, 2018) - Simple text and clear concept book of opposites.
Nothing Stopped Sophie: The Story of Unshakable Mathematician Sophie Germain by Cheryl Bardoe; Illustrated by Barbara McClintock (Little Brown and Company, June 12, 2018) - I love biographies about individuals that I know so little about and yet can be inspired by their lives and passions.
A Bunch of Punctuation - Poems selected by Lee Bennett Hopkins; Illustrated by Serge Bloch (Wordsong, August 7, 2018) - A fabulous collection of poems on punctuation.
