I changed the name for my “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” posts to “My Reading Week.”
A delightful quirky story about a rock that is more than a rock. Great to pair with Rot by Ben Clanton as they both celebrate being oneself!
I was immediately drawn to this story about a solution-based girl who helps a stranger with his problem in a very innovative and environmentally conscious way! Fun rhythmic read which should be a hit during storytimes.
A playful picture book which I was already planning on reading but was intrigued after a customer said it didn’t really have a resolution. Maybe if the title had to do with who should win the Mom’s undivided attention, it would have been enjoyed better. I thought it was cute.
A lovely tribute to friendship all the days of the year. A sweet message that this is not a valentines because love transcends a space a calendar.
A good book to teach kids how to deal with frustration. Although, it seemed like an act-first-apologize-later behavior but then I may have been having a cranky day when I read this dealing with people who like to make mess in places they shouldn’t.
Apparently, this was first self-published then picked up and redid with a new illustrator.
Another classic. Another delightful read. Simple rhyming text with an “I Spy” element.
I also noticed there was an audio version of this picture book and I wonder how that goes.
Immediately after reading this, I couldn’t wait to recommend it teachers who come to the store. A fun book about what to do with a collection of ideas.
I wish I enjoyed this picture book graphic novel more. I love all the call backs to other comics and the story of this shy but smart and super talented and creative girl. But a couple of New York character cameos annoyed me when I saw them.
Perfect for fans who enjoyed The Mysterious Benedict Society! List-making and puzzle-loving girl ends up staying at a hotel full of odd guests and family secrets. She ends up more involved than she anticipated as she finds a much sought after book in its library.
I didn’t realize this was a trilogy. So now I wait for the next installment although it pretty much wrapped itself up.
****= Highly Recommended
