It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA!

It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme started by Sheila at Book Journeys and now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It’s also a great chance to see what others are reading right now…you just might discover the next “must-read” book!

Kellee and Jen, of Teach Mentor Texts, decided to give It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit – join us! We love this meme and think you will, too.

At ALA Annual Conference! 🙂

Also, we are moving homes here in Orlando, so I am going to take off about 6 weeks to get my family moved and settled. I’ll be back early August.

Sadly, I didn’t read any new books this week. My new baby is taking up a good amount of time. (I’m actually in my rocking chair with him right now.) I’m sorry that I’m not being a good blogger lately!

Although Trent still loves picture books, he is really loving early reader chapter books and series.

  • We finished the 2nd and 3rd Mercy Watson books, and he just loves that pig. After I read him the 3rd one, he went and retold it to his dad–it was a heart-filling moment.
  • I was looking for an audiobook to listen to one night, and saw that the Andy Shane series is available on Overdrive with my library, so we listened to the first one. He listened to it all in one sitting and seemed to really like it; he has asked to read the 2nd one.

  • A Tear in the Ocean by H.M. Bouwman: Two stories combine to answer the question a young boy is searching for while also helping his friend figure out where she belongs.
  • Far Away by Lisa Graff: CJ lives with her Aunt Nic who is a famous medium. CJ travels the nation with her and truly believes in what her Aunt does helps her audience.

Hi! I’ve returned from maternity leave! My almost 8-week-old son is currently laying next to a toy. I might have 30 seconds to write this post, and I might have 30 minutes. It will be a surprise! Ha ha ha.

Over maternity leave, I read several dozen books from the library. My older sons and I checked out a total of 65 books.

I finished Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu. It was excellent and worth the hype. It was very similar in many ways to Nowhere Girls (which I read while pregnant). Both had strong messages, and I loved reading each of them!

I am listening to Tradition by Brendan Kiely. I am trying to read more books related to #metoo, and this one fit into that topic. So far, it is very good.

I am reading (and really enjoying) Frankly in Love by David Yoon. Because I am trying to get enough sleep, I only read a chapter per night, and it is a real treat. The narrator’s voice is very powerful. This book is going to end up on my favorites list this year.

As promised, we read some Mercy and Narwhal this week! I just love both of these series so much and so happy to read the new Mercy piglet picture book, too–a origin story of our favorite porcine wonder. Also, peanut Narwhal is ADORABLE! Trent also picked out a Pete the Cat book which made me so happy because he has been not wanting to read Pete books.

 

We finished A Bear Called Paddington! Yay! I think it was a little too long of an audiobook without read along text, but we enjoyed it overall. Then Trent picked out Inspector Flytrap to read next. It is a read along on Hoopla, and he LOVES them. The sloth throughout is definitely his favorite. Angleberger and Bell are hilarious together!

Three upcoming titles!

  • Roll With It by Jamie Sumner is a story of a baking-fanatic who moves to a small town that is not very equip to deal with her wheelchair but a rough start does not always indicate the future.
  • The second Kitten Construction Company was just as cute and funny as the first. I love this story of inclusion!
  • Oh, what a mash up!!!! Mighty Jack and Zita the Space Girl by Ben Hatke is everything readers will want and more! And it made me want to go back and read both series again!

  • The Bridge Home by Padma Venkatraman follows Viji and Rukku as the flee their abusive home to live on the streets of Chennai.
  • Fear of Missing Out by Kate McGovern is Astrid’s story of living when she finds out she is dying.

  • Sleepover at the Museum by Karen LeFrak: Now Trent wants to sleep at a Natural History Museum! A fun look at all the different parts of the museum.
  • There Are No Bears in This Bakery by Julia Sarcone-Roach: Fun and different picture book! I love the illustrations.
  • Building Books by Megan Wagner Lloyd: Books are for everyone, and this book helps its character realize that.
  • Hip-Hop Lollipop by Susan Montanari: What a great rhythmic picture book! And I loved seeing the motion in the illustrations.

  • Harold Loves His Wooly Hat by Vern Kousky: Trent and I both loved this cute book. It is especially thoughtful for us because just like Harold doesn’t want to take off his hat, Trent doesn’t like to wear anything but long sleeves and pants, so it was a good conversation starter.
  • Just One You! by Lillian Jaine: A great inspirational book with all of our favorite Sesame Street characters, and I really did love the edition of questions for parents to ask their kids while reading.
  • Owls Are Good at Keeping Secrets by Sara O’Leary: Trent adored this fun alphabet book! While I wouldn’t call it unusual, I will say that it is silly!
  • No Boring Stories by Julie Falatko: Why would a bunny want to join a writing group? The other animals probably shouldn’t assume anything.

  • Once Upon a Star by James Carter: Some of my favorite illustrations ever. And Trent loved the space information.
  • Paddington Sets Sail and Paddington and the Magic Trick by Michael Bond: Both of these are “read alongs” on the Hoopla app, and Trent and I read them (and others) when we need to fill some time.
  • My Heart by Corinna Luyken: The book filled my heart. Beautiful! Book of Mistakes was my Caldecott favorite, so I’m not surprised that I loved this one too.

  • The Mighty Heart of Sunny St. James by Ashley Herring Blake: Sunny St. James deals with heart surgery, family changes, and first kisses.
  • Every Moment After by Joseph Moldover: Eleven years after a school shooting, the survivors are graduating. The years have passed but the PTSD hasn’t.
  • Shout by Laurie Halse Anderson: Anderson’s #timesup memoir.
  • I Have No Secrets by Penny Joelson: Stuck In Neutral meets Out of My Mind with a murder mystery.

  • The Land of Stories: An Author’s Odyssey by Chris Colfer: Oh man! The true conflict has revealed itself! Need to get to the final book soon!
  • Extraordinary Birds by Sandy Stark-McGinnis: December’s outlet while moving from foster home to foster home is imagining she’s a bird and learning everything about birds.
  • Heroine by Mindy McGinnis: One car accident can change the trajectory of lives.

I will update what I’ve read/am reading next week–this long weekend, family who I haven’t seen in 4-10 years are in town, so I just didn’t set enough time aside to write everything up to share!

  • The Dark Side of Nowhere by Neal Shusterman: One of his earlier books that show how innately good a storyteller he is! About finding out that your family isn’t exactly what you think it is.
  • Sasquatch and the Muckleshoot by Adam Gidwitz and Joseph Bruchac: I adore this series! This story was a little less action and more narrative than the first two. And if you haven’t seen, they’re making a Unicorn Rescue Society game: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jessecasey/unicorn-rescue-society-the-card-game!
  • The True History of Lyndie B. Hawkins by Gail Shepherd: Lyndie B. Hawkins’s life changed really quick, and she is working to figure it all out.
  • Finding Orion by John David Anderson: Check out my post from last week!

Trent and I are taking a chapter book break to read new picture books!

  • One Fox: A Counting Book Thriller by Kate Read: I love when I find unique counting books, and this definitely is one! So much fun!
  • Camp Tiger by Susan Choi: An extended metaphor about change and fear. Beautiful illustrations!
  • Lana Lynn Howls at the Moon by Rebecca Van Slyke: Such a cute book about figuring out our place.
  • The King of Kindergarten by Derrick Barnes: Loved reading this one to Trent as he gets ready to go to Kindergarten in the fall!
  • Nobody Hugs a Cactus by Carter Goodrich: Even the most grumpy need some love (and that grumpy cactus is so adorable!).

  • I Will Race You Through This Book! by Jonathan Fenske: Definitely one of Trent’s favorites from this group–I really think that interactive picture books done well are some of the best out there!
  • I Lost My Tooth by Mo Willems: Another multiple read title for Trent. Mo Willems just knows kid humor, and this story of tooth ignorant squirrels is just too funny.
  • Blooming Beneath the Sun by Christina Rossetti: Illustrated by Ashley Bryan because he loves Rossetti’s poems, so you know it is beautiful.
  • Sign Off by Stephen Savage: What a cool concept about sign silhouettes coming to life!
  • Little Blue Truck’s Springtime by Alice Shertle: Little Blue Truck is a favorite of all five year olds, I think.

  • Little Fox and the Missing Moon by Ekaterina Trukhan: Little Fox is so cute!
  • Fly by Nathan Clement: A narrative nonfiction text looking at traveling by airplane.
  • I Love You All Year Through by Stephanie Stansbie: These books always choke me up–any book to show love is a winner!
  • Bedtime for Beasties by Leslie Staub: A girl takes control of her fears!
  • Dolphins: Strange and Wonderful by Laurence Pringle: Dolphins are strange and wonderful, and we loved learning about all the different kinds.

  • Like a Lizard by April Pulley Sayre: This was a fun way to teach about lizards! A great mix of silliness and facts.
  • The Very Impatient Caterpillar by Ross Burach: This book was hilarious–both Trent and I thought so!
  • Mrs. Wow Never Wanted a Cow by Martha Freeman: A good book for rhyming.
  • The Goose Egg by Liz Wong: Trent loved this one, too! Fun look at idioms mixed with a fun unexpected parenting story.
  • Moon! Earth’s Best Friend by Stacy McAnulty: Stacy McAnulty is brilliant–Moon! has been read so many times in my house already.

  • Douglas, You’re a Genius by Ged Adamson: This book reminded me a bit of Phineas and Ferb.
  • There’s a Dragon in Your Book by Tom Fletcher: Another really well done interactive picture book! We went and requested There’s a Monster in Your Book right away!
  • Perfect by Max Amato: Pencil versus eraser.
  • Dust Bunny Wants a Friend by Amy Hevron: Trent loved that he could read this mostly-wordless picture book. I loved that super cute illustrations and how much Trent pulled from them to add to the story.
  • Lion Lessons by Jon Agee: Too funny! Just a very clever book about nature versus nurture.
