It's Monday! What are you reading? From Picture Books to YA

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.

After getting back from ALA Midwinter, I had a super busy week which limited the number of books that I could read.  Here are a few that stood out to me from the past week.

Peace by Wendy Anderson Halperin - I found this title up in Seattle at the Secret Garden Bookstore.  The illustrations are beautiful and the text weaves together. 

Infinity and Me by Kate Hosford - This book is a good one for math fans.  I enjoyed how the author tries to help readers understand the concept of Infinity.

Jacob Lawrence in the City by Susan Goldman Rubin- An interesting board book that looks at various paintings of Jacob Lawrence.

Penguin on Vacation by Salina Yoon (release date April 16, 2013) - I had an opportunity to see an F&G of this one.  I love this follow-up to Penguin and Pinecone.

So, what are you reading this week?
