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.

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.
My five-year-old and I have been filling in daily pages in a journal called Me: A Compendium by wee society. As you can see above, it is a journal that highlights the importance of the child and the child’s interests. He loves it and looks forward to doing a couple more pages each night, and it gives me time to spend with him doing something different and exciting. I am a big fan of this journal, and you can see a few of the pages above.
I am still seeking two more middle or high school teachers to share their ideas for teaching YAL in Teacher Call-Out Boxes in a book I am writing for NCTE. I have eight solid contributors and was hoping to round out to ten contributors total. If you know teachers who creatively use YAL in their classrooms, would you please send them my way? I am particularly seeking teachers who teach a YAL elective, but I am open to any uses of the literature. Middle and high school teachers only, please. 🙂
I am not sure where my next reading travel will go. My youngest is nine weeks old, and it seems to be hard to keep up on sleep and reading. I know it is just a short period of time, and I will be back in action soon. I am sorry I haven’t been sharing a lot of books!
