It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA!
It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. 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!
Jen Vincent, of Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee 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.
We encourage everyone who participates to support the blogging community by visiting at least three of the other book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them.

Last Week’s Journeys
Kellee: Ricki here. I am so excited to announce that Kellee had her baby! Trent was born this Thursday. Both Mama and baby are doing very well! His very first book was The Little Mouse, The Red, Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear by Don and Audrey Wood because it was his dad’s favorite book. Because Kellee is busy with baby-related things, she will give her reading update next week. I am sure you understand. 🙂
Ricki: This week, I started several books, and because of that, I didn’t finish any of them! Whoops. Henry and I are continuing to scavenge the local libraries to get our hands on every book in Jane Yolen’s Dinosaur series. We read How Do Dinosaurs Go to School? and his dad read a bunch of books to him. Next week, I promise to be better!
This Week’s Expeditions
Kellee: I am sure Kellee has broken into her children’s book collection, and she will update you all next week!
Ricki: I plan to finish Lisa Delpit’s Other People’s Children this week. It is excellent. I like the controversy behind it, and it is really make me think deeply about the beliefs I hold. I also started Threatened by Eliot Schrefer, which I am really enjoying.
