It’s Monday! What are you reading?
Each week I share at least one reading photo of the week. My camera was on the wrong setting this week and photos unfortunately are too blurry to share.
Our #classroombookaday titles for the past 2 weeks have been all about Caldecott titles. We read some past winners.
Join Jen from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers and share all of the reading you have done over the week from picture books to young adult novels. Follow the links to read about all of the amazing books the #IMWAYR community has read. It’s the best way to discover what to read next.
Books I enjoyed:
Don’t Forget Dexter by Lindsay Ward
Dexter, the dinosaur is left behind by his boy, Jack. What if they are never reunited? A fantastic title for teaching voice and perspective. An engaging read aloud for primary students.
Claymates by Dev Petty and Lauren Eldridge
Two balls of clay and endless potential. Hilarious and wonderfully charming.
Love by Matt de la Peña and illustrated by Loren Long
Bruce’s Big Move by Ryan T. Higgins
Bruce remains my favourite grumpy guy. Again, Higgins delivers!
The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street by Karina Yan Glaser
A family to fall in love with. You will be rooting for the Vanderbeekers from the first pages. Delightful middle grade read.
The 57 Bus by Dashka Slater
A YA nonfiction title. I had coffee with a friend today and recommended this book to her. We ended up talking for a long time about the story and all that I learned. A must read for everyone teen and up.
Up next? A List of Cages by Robin Roe
