It's Monday! What are you reading? From Picture Books to YA 3/11/13

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.

Here are some of my favorite books from this past week:

Louisa May's Battle: How the Civil War Led to Little Women by Kathleen Krull; Illustrated by Carlyn Beccia (Walker Books for Young Readers, March 2013) - I love Louisa May Alcott and Kathleen Krull's work.  Krull writing about Alcott -fantastic!  Just in time for Women's History Month.

Miss Moore Thought Otherwise: How Anne Carroll Moore Created Libraries for Children by Jane Pinborough; Illustrated by Debby Atwell (Houghton Mifflin Books for Children, March 2013) - Fascinating story about the woman who created libraries for children including the Children's Room at the New York Public Library. 

The Longest Night: A Passover Story by Laurel Snyder; Illustrated by Catia Chien (Schwartz & Wade, February 2013) - Laurel Snyder has created a beautiful story for and about Passover. 

A Sweet Passover by Lesléa Newman; Illustrated by David Slonim (Abrahms, 2012) - This one is truly a "sweet" Passover story.  I want to try the recipe at the end.

Red Hat by Lita Judge (Simon & Schuster, March 2013) -  The Red Hat from The Red Sled finds a place in Judge's latest book. 

Nobody by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (Egmont, January 2013) - Check out my review and giveaway here.
