It’s Monday! What are you reading?

I have been sharing a reading photo of the week each week. This one was taken during a sharing time about what we noticed about the characters in the picture books we had been reading. I love the focus and the attention!

I am in the middle of report cards and was away for part of last week- hence, this post will be brief just sharing a few images of titles I read this week. I hope to have more to share next week when these reports are complete! My Saturday Celebration post highlights a little of my “busy” past week.

Something about a Bear by Jackie Morris

As always, the art . . . wow. Nonfiction title about various bears.

In my Heart: A Book of Feelings written by Jo Witek and illustrated by Christine Roussey

The most special thing about this title? The cut out pages. Lovely exploration of feelings.

If: A Mind Bending Way of Looking at Big Ideas and Numbers written by David J. Smith illustrated by Steve Adams
