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:
Louisa May's Battle: How the Civil War Led to Little Women by Kathleen Krull; Illustrated by Carlyn Beccia (Walker Books for Young Readers, March 2013) - I love Louisa May Alcott and Kathleen Krull's work. Krull writing about Alcott -fantastic! Just in time for Women's History Month.
Miss Moore Thought Otherwise: How Anne Carroll Moore Created Libraries for Children by Jane Pinborough; Illustrated by Debby Atwell (Houghton Mifflin Books for Children, March 2013) - Fascinating story about the woman who created libraries for children including the Children's Room at the New York Public Library.
The Longest Night: A Passover Story by Laurel Snyder; Illustrated by Catia Chien (Schwartz & Wade, February 2013) - Laurel Snyder has created a beautiful story for and about Passover.
A Sweet Passover by Lesléa Newman; Illustrated by David Slonim (Abrahms, 2012) - This one is truly a "sweet" Passover story. I want to try the recipe at the end.
Red Hat by Lita Judge (Simon & Schuster, March 2013) - The Red Hat from The Red Sled finds a place in Judge's latest book.
Nobody by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (Egmont, January 2013) - Check out my review and giveaway here.
