I changed the name for my “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” posts to “My Reading Week.”
A playful book that takes where animals live and depicts it literally.
Bruce and friends will be getting new fans with this early reader.
I’m not quite sure how I felt about this book. I laughed at certain parts. There was an overall feel of things not quite meshing. But I think kids who enjoyed The 13-Story Treehouse will enjoy this series also from Australia where snack time or recess is called “little lunch.”
Powerful. Moving. I didn’t really know about Japanese internment camps until a few years ago and I think more people need to learn about them. There’s so many good things about this book that I can’t really process it all yet but I love the grandparents. I wish there’ll be a sequel to this. One of my Newbery picks for 2019.
Quick bite sized advice to inspire.
Bilingual English/Spanish. A boy feels embarrassed about his mom’s partner, Leslie, who his classmates make fun of for looking like a guy and dresses in messy paint-splattered overalls. When Mother’s Day comes, will he be too embarrassed to show the two women in his life how important they are to him?
Simple text celebrates a Sunday morning session based on the inclusive Glide church in San Francisco.
Bilingual English/Spanish. A sweet story about a boy finding the perfect song to sing for another boy.
More people need to know about Bayard Rustin, a gay African-American activist who played a role in practically every major Civil Rights Movement events. Through his correspondences, we learn about his beliefs. A great example of a flawed individual who did great good things.
