I changed the name for my “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” posts to “My Reading Week.”
I’d been meaning to read this for awhile now. A sad but beautiful story of a war torn country and how its people found a way to continue living despite the atrocities. We can all be heroes. And there are various things we can do to be one.
Includes additional information on Sarajevo and the musician. I didn’t realize it came with a CD that includes the audiobook version, an interview with the author, and a couple musical pieces.
A delightful read that will make readers want to take a closer look at what magical things they may find while out and about.
Love is Love shows that underneath all our differences, we have similarities. A great book to share to show that there are all kinds of families. I appreciated that it shows that not everyone won’t be as open to these ideas which is why it’s so important to have stories like this.
Includes lots of resource materials at the back of the book which I think makes this a great purchase.
I can’t wait to share this book. Such a beautiful read. The rhythmic text will be perfect for read-alouds and bedtimes. It both soothes and creates a sort of mystery. The art builds upon the story. I love reading the media and style used for this. This book is meant to read over and over again.
Meet five kids as they count multiple things in this multilingual board book with buttons to hear them speak in French, Japanese, Mandarin, English, and Spanish!
Hair, hair, hair (books) everwhere! This is fun to read aloud for young kids.
A sweet addition to the DC Super Heroes picture book series pairing heroic feats with everyday tasks perfect for young readers.
Super cute picture book about pigs going on a picnic and how obstacles may not really be as bad as they seem.
This graphic novel has been included in lots of recent lists of LGBT books to read. A fashionable and forward fairy tale about finding your true self. While at certain points it seemed very cliché- sort of like the early steps media had when they were first introducing gay characters- I did appreciate how complicated the emotions and other situations were. I wouldn’t mind reading at least one more story of these characters to fully realize who they are.
I’m still basking in the afterglow from Kate DiCamillo’s event last week so I decided to read a couple of her picture books.
A beautiful story set in Christmastime but with a message perfect for sharing all year round. And the illustrations are absolutely gorgeous. Read this now and remember it as a holiday gift.
A “not-so-chicken” chicken wants adventure in her life. And, so, she goes out and has them. Sometimes, it’s too much for Louise who then dreams of being back home with her friends. Chapters break up this picture book perfect for a long storytime or extended for a night or two.
In my goal to read all my Agatha Christie books in chronological order, it was time for this nonfiction. Knowing her from mostly mysteries, this took a little bit of getting used to but it was a fascinating read regardless. It doesn’t feel like a textbook since she focuses on her experiences. It’s like a travelogue more than anything.
****= Highly Recommended
