It's Monday! What are your reading? From Picture Books to YA (47)

It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. Jen & Kellee from Teach Mentor Texts have adapted this to focus on Picture Books to Young Adult Books.

My reading continues to be influenced by the Nerdy Book Club nominations, as well as my search for more nonfiction picture books.

Here is what jumped out this week...

Giants Beware! by Rafael Rosado and Jorge Aguirre - Adventure, friendship, fun and some great lines and references.

Laundry Day by Maurie J. Manning - Part picture book and part graphic novel - the illustrations are lovely in this tale of a young shoe shine boy who goes in search of the person who lost a red scarf and discovers the diversity of his neighborhood.

Mal and Chad: Food Fight by Stephen McCranie - This has been on my list to read and glad to finally find it. 

Holiday choices...

The Christmas Quiet Book by Deborah Underwood; Illustrated by Renata Liwska - Check out the book trailer.  I love The Quiet Book and The Loud Book.  This is a great addition to the collection.

A Christmas Tree for Pyn by Olivier Dunrea - I am a fan of Dunrea's books and I enjoyed this holiday story about a young girl who dreams and plans for a Christmas Tree.

Check back in on Tuesday and Wednesday for the poetry titles and the nonfiction picture books that I read.

So what are you currently reading?
