Teach Mentor Texts have adapted this to focus on Picture Books to Young Adult Books.
Each week I'll recap what I've read/reviewed the week before
and then look ahead to what I am planning on reading/reviewing in the upcoming week.
Last week's Book Adventures:
Holiday Book Adventures:
Here are a few of the holiday picture books that I sat down to explore. Six books and six very different stories representing the spirit of the upcoming holidays.
2012 Releases - A Sneak Peak:
This week I had a chance to read advanced copies of three picture books that will be released in early 2012. The Cloud Spinner was a beautiful tale that I truly enjoyed. My Heart Will Not Sit Down was a dramatized account of a real incident from 1931 and the story was truly moving. And How to Babysit Grandpa is a make you smile, laugh out loud sort of book. I would recommend putting these on your future TBR pile.
Upcoming Book Adventures:
I honestly have to say that I don't know which books will be my book adventures for this upcoming week. I did really enjoy Our Only May Amelia this past week and looking forward to continuing with The Trouble with May Amelia by Jennifer L. Holm. I have Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver ready to go on my iPod as my next audiobook choice (Jim Dale is the narrator). And after seeing the movie trailer for The Borrowers, I was thinking about reading this childhood favorite. I guess you will have to wait till next week to see what I actually read.
So, what are you reading this week?
Please share! And remember to check in at Sheila's or Jen & Kellee's blog to see what they and others are reading!
