Just as I thought I was getting back into the swing of things, I have a week where I spent nearly every night out. However, I did manage to squeeze in some fabulous books.
Here is what jumped out of the stack...
Lisa Fiedler; Illustrated by Vivienne To - Click on the title to go to my post on this book. There is also a giveaway happening.
by Christopher Healy; Illustrated by (Walden Pond Press, April 29, 2014) - It is so sad that the series is ending. I have really enjoyed this one and frequently hand sell it to people wherever I am. If you click on the link, you can go to my post on this book and enter to win a copy.
by Ben Hatke (First Second, May 13, 2014) - I feel like I have been waiting so long for this book, and I am so glad it is finally here. It is the final installment in the trilogy, and I will miss Zita and her wonderful attitude.
by George O'Connor (Candlewick Press, May 13, 2014) - O'Connor is well known for his Olympian Graphic Novels, but I have to say I really enjoyed this one.
I love the illustrations in this book, and it would be a good choice to use when discussing with students the difference between what the text says and what the visuals are communicating.
by Chris Raschka (Candlewick, May 13, 2014) - Interesting and a bit out there. However, I suspect that Sun Ra, the musician, was also a bit out there. The illustrations are amazing.
by Michael Hall (Greenwillow, April 22, 2014) - Hall uses his characteristic style to create a fun story with repetitive lines and the need to make predictions.
So, what are you reading?
