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.

I know I have been gone for a while but we suffered a family loss this last week, and I am taking off a bit more time from Mondays as we spend time as a family. Thank you for understanding!
(and I apologize in advance for the LONG Monday post when I do get back…)


This week, my son and I have been reading many of the BOB books. These are great first readers and quite fun. We’ve also been learning about the value of coins. There was a fun workbook in Target this week. Normally, I don’t love workbooks, but there are some workbooks that are genuinely FUN! I haven’t read any YA books this week, and all of my nightly reading with the kids has been picture books.

However, I am excited to share that I’ve organized ten teacher call-out boxes for my book about YAL in the classroom. Several readers of this blog shared some great teaching ideas, and I can’t wait to send them on to NCTE! 🙂



I hit a bit of a reading rut because my baby is adjusting out of a swaddle. It turns out that this pulls away from sleeping time. I am hoping to get back into reading some good books soon. I am sorry—life is a bit wild right now, but I am working on getting back into reading some good stuff.

  1. I’m sorry to hear of your loss, Kellee. My sympathies to you and your family. Ricki, babies change all the time, don’t they? Enjoy the moments. I imagine you’re also prepping for school, so time is so limited.

  2. Kellee~ I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. Please take care of yourself as you grieve.

    Ricki~ Congrats on the teacher call-out boxes. I can’t wait to see what all you’ve been up to!
