Celebrate This Week– This week, I’m celebrating my Reading Challenges, especially my To Be Read in 2015!

worm
Worm Loves Worm by J.J. Austrian, Illustrated by Mike Curato

[***] I was trying my best not to read any books published in 2016 but this was too cute to pass up. When two worms meet, fall in love and want to get married, complications arise when they’re friends wonder how their wedding will fit their ideas of conventionality. But, spoiler alert, it all comes down to love.

loveyou
I Love You Already! by Jory John, Illustrated by Benji Davies

[***] In this sequel to Goodnight Already!, Bear is preparing to spend a quiet day by himself but Duck has other ideas! Will these two friends find a compromise?

amazingpeace
Amazing Peace by Maya Angelou, Illustrated by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher

[***] This beautiful picture book shares a poem celebrating the holidays with gorgeous paintings. Find the version with a CD that includes Maya Angelou reading her poem.

howto
How to Mend a Heart by Sara Gillingham

[***] Following How to Grow a Friend, this is another super cute picture book about heart break and putting it back together again using an arts-and-crafts approach.

10
10 by Marion Bataille

[***] I may have read this before because I loved Marion Bataille’s ABC 3D and Numero. This time we count up and down in this clever brilliant pop up book. One turns to 10. Two turns to 9 and so on.

  1. I’m looking forward to I Love You Already and How to Mend a Heart. Waiting for the library to get copies of them.
    I briefly read Worm Loves Worm at NCTE. It’s one I want to read slowly and enjoy the positive message!

  2. I loved Amazing Peace – but used it as a read-aloud during Christmas and it did not work as well as I hoped it would. I had a group of young kids, which may explain why it fell flat – perhaps with a group of older readers, there would be a much more nuanced appreciation of the cadence of the language – but the illustrations are gorgeous, aren’t they? Hope you had a lovely Christmas, Earl and a wonderful New Year’s celebration too!
