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.


My 7yo just finished reading Mighty Jack by Ben Hatke to me. I enjoyed this book a lot, and I looked forward to reading it each night. I am excited to read the second one!

I just finished April Baker-Bell’s Linguistic Justice: Black Language, Literacy, Identity, and Pedagogy. My department did a book study of this book in preparation of the National Writing Project Rocky Mountain Regional Conference this June 11-13, 2021. If you haven’t registered, I know they are accepting late registrations: I am looking forward to hearing her speak at the conference. The book is incredible.



I am reading Like a Love Story by Abdi Nazemian and liking it very much!


Thursday: Oakley the Squirrel: The Search for Z: A Nutty Alphabet Book by Nancy Rose

  1. Ricki, the books you’ve been reading sound great! Linguistic Justice sounds incredibly valuable, and Like a Love Story sounds like a great read as well. Thank you both for the great post and round-up!

  2. Ricki~ I love reading about your 7-year-old reading to you each night. My 7 y/o is doing the same. Lately she’s been obsessed with the Wings of Fire series. She started with the regular books and then I ordered a couple of the graphic novels, which only further ignited her obsession. LOL I’ve put in a request to borrow Mighty Jack. I’m excited to see if this is another series she might like. Hope you fully enjoy your upcoming conference!
