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.

Sorry for still being away from the blog, but with the ALA Youth Media Awards right around the corner, I am deep in my reading for the Schneider Family Award, so I will be back after the ALA YMA on the 27th.
Isn’t Jen Wang amazing? I loved her new novel Stargazing. It is thoughtful and teaches wonderful themes. This is a great staple for your classroom library, and it would also make a wonderful read-aloud.
Just Ask! by Sonia Sotomayor is a great book about engaging with people with different disabilities. It offers a plant metaphor and also discusses the wide variance of disabilities that people have.
I’ll likely be rereading Piecing Me Together this week to prepare to teach it in Methods. I am also still enjoying the Harry Potter illustrated novel with my kids.
Tuesday: The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys
Thursday: Explorers by Matthew Cordell

I’m looking forward to those awards coming so soon, Kellee! And also looking forward to the sharing of The Fountains of Silence, Ricki. What a special book! Happy Reading to you both!
I agree with your thoughts about Jen Wang. Loved Stargazing!
Can’t wait for YMA!
It feels like I’m waiting soooo long to get a copy of Just Ask! It looks so good. Thanks for the shares!
Yes, Stargazing is indeed wonderful.
Kelle, thank you for all your work. I’m having trouble just reading and evaluating the cybils’ finalists.
Bedtime for Sweet Creatures looks so sweet. 🙂
