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.

Happy reading!


Thursday: Love is a Revolution by Renée Watson

As I’ve shared, I am taking the rest of May and the beginning of June off. I plan to be back on June 21st–see you then!

To keep up with what I am reading, check out my 2021 Goodreads Challenge page  or my read bookshelf on Goodreads.


Hear My Voice / Escucha Mi Voz: The Testimonies of Children Detained at the Southern Border of the United States, Compiled by Warren Binford for Project Amplify

This book was gut-wrenching. It is a compilation of words from actual court records and features the voices of children at the border. If you flip the book over, you can read the English/Spanish versions. The middle of the book is packed with important information for readers to discuss and consider the ways they might act for justice.

We Are Still Here!: Native American Truths Everyone Should Know by Traci Sorell, Illustrated by Frané Lessac

I read this book with all three of my children, and each of them found the book to be accessible in different ways. There is so much information in this well-research text that kids from all ages will appreciate. Traci Sorell is simply brilliant.



I am currently reading Like a Love Story by Abdi Nazemian. I am not very far into the book, but it’s really good so far.


Thursday: Charming as a Verb by Ben Philippe

Saturday: Sofia’s Kids’ Corner: Top 5 Graphic Novel Girl Power Books for Intermediate Schoolers

  1. Ricki, all of the books you’ve been reading sound excellent! Hear My Voice sounds excruciating but incredibly important, so I appreciate you recommending it. I also took a look at your review of Love is a Revolution, and it sounds like a really unique story! Thank you both for the great post and round-up!

  2. I see that Hear My Voice wasn’t on my list, so I’m making sure to add it now. Sounds really important – hoping it’s something I could share with my kiddos! And I’ll look forward to Sofia’s Kids’ Corner, as well. Thank you both for hosting #imwayr!
