This weekly post comes from Jen at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki at Unleashing Readers. It's a great source to find new books to use with your students.
Last Week's Adventures
The book Tiny Stitches reminded me so much of our experience with our daughter's orthopedic specialist. I celebrated the book and our experiences here.
I love middle grade, but sometimes books in this format are too old for my middle grade readers. I was so excited to find LouLou and Pea. Their mystery will appeal to so many readers. Check it out here.
I featured a roundup of some new wordless picture books.
Mitzi Tulane Preschool Detective In What's That Smell? by Lauren McLaughlin
Super cute mystery for young readers! I loved so many things about this books - that it features adoption of mixed race without this book being about that at all (read the Nerdy post), loved that the mom couldn't cook that well, loved that it's a picture book MYSTERY!
The Highest Mountain of Books in the World by Rocio Bonilla
Would be a cute story to share at the beginning of the year to kick off the idea that books take you to different places.
Quit Calling Me a Monster! by Jory John
I can hear giggling as this one is read. Cute and silly, funny ending.
Cloud and Wallfish by Anne Nesbit
Compelling historical fiction. The way the history is embedded throughout the story is really quite amazing. Come back to see my full review on Thursday.
Ghost by Jason Reynolds
My middle grade reading continues to be halted. Little reading gets done, but I'm getting through what I can!
Really enjoying this book so far. Great voice from Reynolds.
Another slow reading week for me. Having a hard time finding time to read during the week.
Did you find time to read this week?
