It’s Monday! What are you reading?

Each week I share a reading photo of the week. I loved this engaged duo reading nonfiction for buddy reading. Lots of talking and commentary going on!

For those following our robot love art projects (this is for you Elisabeth Ellington) inspired by reading Boy + Bot by Ame Dyckman – we have now made robot homes for our robots!

I am applying for jobs right now and thinking about taking my book collection along – – > These Books (Slice of Life)

Books I enjoyed:

One Day on our Blue Planet . . . In the Savannah by Ella Bailey

My class loves this series (and hopes, like me, that there will soon be more!) We loved the end pages, the events of a day of one little creature and learning so much about a specific place in the world.

The Twins’ Blanket by Hyewon Yum

As a mama of twins, this book has special connected feelings. A lovely book about siblings in general, more specifically about the connection of twins.

The White Book by Silvia Borando, Elisabetta Pica and Lorenzo Clerici

Wonderful and wordless. Some paint, a white wall and who knows what might happen!

Sun and Moon by Lindsey Yankey

I really loved the illustrations here. Moon would like to trade places with sun for the day. When asked to really pay attention to the world he sees when looking carefully, is that still what he wants?

Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie by Julie Sternberg and Matthew Cordell

The voice of this character! Cordell’s whimsical illustrations! Ideal early primary material. I am a big instant fan.

House Arrest by K.A. Holt

Oh, my heart. I cried finishing the book. Cried reading the acknowledgements. Incredible read – a novel in verse with such voice. I am in awe and mostly speechless. A must, must, must read!

  1. You’ve got several cute books, and I am ready for summer reading! I’ve ordered One Day On Our Blue Planet and Like Pickle Juice On a Cookie from my library. Good luck on your new classroom! Hope you have a great summer getting prepared.

  2. I’ve always had Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie on my list, but I have never read it (that I can remember). This is a good reminder to get a copy at my library! Thanks, Carrie!
