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.

Brilliant. Just like everyone told me it was.
I started the week reading Smithsonian’s Solar System book and activity kit. These kids are quite fun. My son loves them, and they make learning exciting.
I REREAD Refugee by Alan Gratz. My students are reading Land of Permanent Goodbyes, American Street, and Refugee for a week where we talk about immigration and refugees. We had a long talk today about the value of #ownvoices, and I am curious what they think after reading these three books. Authorship is important to them, but we did talk about the power of research. It is a great discussion, and I think these three books are incredibly well-written, so that makes the discussion even more interesting.
I also read three PD books about action research in the classroom. I am deciding which of the three to use as one of my course texts for my Investigating Classroom Literacies course next semester. Each has great strengths, so I will keep you posted. You can expect a Teaching Tuesday ponderings review on this one. 🙂
With my ears: The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer
With my mind: Just Like Jackie by Lindsey Stoddard
With my voice: The House at Pooh Corner by A.A. Milne
