It's Monday! What are you reading? From Picture Books to YA -3/4/13
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.
Here are some of my favorite books from this past week:
Open Very Carefully: A Book with Bite by Nick Bromley; Illustrated by Nicola O'Byrne (Nosy Crow, February 2013) - A fun tale of a crocodile on the loose in a book.
Nora's Chicks by Patricia MacLachlan; Illustrated by Kathryn Brown (Candlewick Press, 2013) - A beautiful tale of immigration, adjustment, and friendship. The illustrations in this are lovely.
Doug Unplugged by Dan Yaccarino (Random House, February 2013) - A good reminder that sometimes learning is best down actively and in the world around us.
Princeless Volume 1: Save Yourself by Jeremy Whitley; Illustrated by M. Goodwin (Action Lab, 2012) - Check out my review on Princeless tomorrow.
Bad Girls: Sirens, Jezebels, Murderesses, Thieves, & Other Female Villains by Jane Yolen; Illustrated by Rebecca Guay (Charlesbridge Publisher, February 2013) - Jane Yolen is such a diverse writer. Just in time for Women's History Month, Bad Girls is a collection of short pieces on 24 notorious women.
I am still working on:
So, what are you reading?
