It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
Sharing Picture Books, Early Readers, Middle Grade Books, and Young Adult Books for All Ages!
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly blog hop co-hosted by Unleashing Readers and Teach Mentor Texts which focuses on sharing books marketed for children and young adults. It offers opportunities to share and recommend books with each other.
The original IMWAYR, with an adult literature focus, was started by Sheila at Book Journeys and is now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date.

Taking a couple of weeks off of IMWAYR before the school year starts — see you after my break 🙂
To see what books I’ve been reading until then, you can check out my 2020 Goodreads Challenge page or my read bookshelf on Goodreads.
This week, we reread Frederick Douglass: The Lion Who Wrote History by Walter Dean Myers. This is one of my favorite nonfiction picture books. It really captures the greatness and strength of Frederick Douglass. The kids love reading it and ask me to reread it often. It’s one of those books that is genuinely appropriate for all ages.
We finished the first book in the new Magnificent Makers series. Magnificent Makers: How to Test a Friendship by Theanne Griffith is about three kids who get sucked into a microscope and explore an aspect of science (in this case, the ecosystem). I LOVED reading this book with the kids. It was a fun way to talk about science and felt like a much better, more complex version of the Magic School Bus. It’s aimed at early elementary schoolers and all of the kids in the K-3 book club that we participate in loved it.
I am participating in several book clubs (connected with action statements) centered on antiracism. I’ll report back in a few weeks, but all of my personal reading has been focused on reading and rereading the nonfiction available.
