It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. Jen & Kellee from Teach Mentor Texts have adapted this to focus on Picture Books to Young Adult Books.
I am calling this the ALA Midwinter '13 edition of What Are You Reading? Here's what I found at ALA this past weekend:
Exclamation Mark! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal; Illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld (Scholastic, March 2013) - Simple yet amazing!!!
The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt; Illustrated by Oliver Jeffers (Penguin, July 2013) - Fantastic story by Daywalt and the illustrations by the talented Jeffers just bring this one more meaning. A must read!
This Is the Rope: A Story From the Great Migration by Jacqueline Woodson; Illustrated by James Ransome (Penguin, August 2013)
Like Bug Juice on a Burger by Julie Sternberg; Illustrated by Matthew Cordell (Amulet, April 2013) - Look, the sequel for Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie is coming. Yay!
Will & Whit by Laura Lee Gulledge (Amulet, April 2013) - I loved Gulledge's first book Page by Paige and I am excited to see that she has a new one that will be out this spring. The illustrations are so filled with meaning.
There is so much more to share but I do hope this gets you excited about what is coming out this spring.
So, what are you reading?
