My Reading Week #IMWAYR- February 19, 2017

19 Feb

I changed the name for my “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” posts to “My Reading Week.”

This week, I posted:
-Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge Wednesday
-Celebrate This Week- This week, I’m celebrating the CYBILS graphic novels categories!

A Perfect DayA Perfect Day by Lane Smith
A cute picture book about perspective. A group of animals are having their own perfect days individually. Then a surprise visitor shows up also having his own perfect day. Fun read aloud because of the contrasting images.

AntoinetteAntoinette by Kelly DiPucchio
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A cute follow up to Gaston. Antoinette the poodle is trying to figure out what her special thing is. Her bulldog brothers all have their talents and qualities that make them stand out. When one of Gaston’s own sisters disappear, it may be up to Antoinette to save the day!

Not Quite NarwhalNot Quite Narwhal by Jessie Sima
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Pretty cute story about a unicorn born under the sea with narwhals. It’s about accepting who you are, as different as you are- and discovering others may like you despite the differences. My favorite part of the book though was the back endpaper.

    Antoinette looks so sweet – I was utterly charmed by Gaston, and I’m sure Antoinette will delight me, too! 🙂

    These are all new to me. It looks like Lane Smith has changed his illustrating style since I last saw one of his books. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    Will look for them all, but A Perfect Day looks wonderful. Thanks, Earl!

    Imagine me jumping up and down on my seat upon reading that Kelly DiPucchio having a sequel to Gaston. I can hardly wait to read Antoinette. I’m with Kathy here regarding Lane Smith. This cover looks very different.
