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.

As warned, I am gone this week–I’ll fill you in next week on why 🙂
Although I read a plethora of picture books this week, I thought I’d share this book: Student-Driven Differentiation by Lisa Westman. I like this book because it includes a lot of student voice. It offered me a lot of ideas for practice in my Methods classroom. K-12 teachers will find a lot to think about with this text. I had a lot of fun thinking through units and lessons.
I am enjoying listening to Dig by A.S. King!

Fred’s Big Feelings looks like a book to check out. I’m intrigued by Fred’s life after seeing the movie, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.
I just finished DIG recently and was completely blown away by it. I am thrilled it won the Printz Award
I had Dig home from the library but had to return it unread. It’s available, but I’m already overwhelmed with books to read.
I just started listening to Dig last week and my Overdrive check out expired, so I’ll have to start over once I come back up on their hold list. Have a wonderful week!
I haven’t gotten to Dig yet, but have heard good things about it. Thanks for sharing the prof. dev. book too.
