This week was a good reading week, though not quite to the same level as the previous week. I continued with book-a-day with a focus on reading as many picture books and some other things off of my very long TBR list.
11 - nonfiction or informational text
2 - Early Readers
25 - picture books
2 - Adult graphic novels
: 40 books
As with last week, much of what I read this week has come from checking out the
What are You Reading?
Nonfiction Picture Book Wednesday
posts from all of you.
Here is what jumped out of the stack...
by Niki Daly (Eerdman's Books for Young Readers, 2012) - A young boy has dreams of becoming a great leader. A powerful message.
by Bob Graham (Candlewick Press, 2013) - I love Bob Graham's work. It is a bit quirky but with an incredible message. A baby takes his first steps and what is everyone else doing at the same time. Great perspective.
by Selby B. Beeler; Illustrated by G. Brian Karas (HMH Books for Young Readers, 1998) - Enjoyed this book about "tooth fairy" traditions around the world.
by Édouard Manceau; Translated by Sarah Quinn (Owlkids Books, 2013) - A few shapes and a concept that is pulled off marvelously.
by Carter Goodrich (Simon & Schuster, June 3, 2014) - Dogs and the cone. A fun story that pet lovers will enjoy!
by Barbara Lehman (HMH Books for Younger Readers, 2004) - Wordless but filled with perspective. Love this book.
Adult (or at least 16+)...
by Brian K. Vaughn; Illustrated by Niko Henrichon (Vertigo, 2006) - I am a fan of Vaughn's work with
and his new series
. So, when I was at a comic book store recently and saw this one discounted I knew I had to pick it up. It is based on a true story of 4 lions who escaped from the zoo in 2003 after a bombing. Definitely has adult content/references.
So, what are you reading?
