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.
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: This week has been filled with picture books! Trent and I read, and loved!, Normal Norman by Tara Lazar and Twenty Yawns by Jane Smiley. He actually let me read him new books, and I thank the amazing illustrations and story. We’ll be sharing both of these soon. I also read the two National Geographic early reader biographies that I will be reviewing on Wednesday.
Ricki: Like, Kel, I also read Normal Norman by Tara Lazar and Twenty Yawns by Jane Smiley! I brought Normal Norman to my parents’ house to show them. They have a dog named Norman, and they loved reading it to him, too! It is a fun book with a great message. Twenty Yawns is a fantastic bedtime story that made me yawn and yawn!
This Week’s Expeditions
Kellee: I’m currently reading Maybe a Fox by Kathi Appelt. I am really loving her prose–she just has a way with words. After I am done, I plan on reading The Honest Truth by Dan Gemeinhart in preparation for my school’s first faculty book club!
Ricki: Well, this isn’t much different, either! I am also reading Maybe a Fox like Kellee! I guess we are focused on our blogging books this week! I am just about finished listening to Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith. More on that next week. 😉
