It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA!
It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It's also a great chance to see what others are reading right now...you just might discover your next “must-read” book!
Kellee Moye, of Unleashing Readers, and I decided to give It's Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children's literature - picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit - join us! We love this meme and think you will, too. We encourage everyone who participates to visit at least three of the other kidlit book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them.
Last Week's Book Adventures:
I finished reading The Digital Writing Workshop and have been contemplating how to encourage teachers I work with to engage in digital writing - whether it's blogging or micro-blogging. I'm a few chapters into Terry Thompson's The Construction Zone: Building Scaffolds For Readers and Writers and loving the connections Terry makes between the decisions we make in teaching and those we make in our lives. There's still time to enter my giveaway of Brian Selznick's The Marvels. It's completely fabulous and one that I'm still thinking about. I was planning to finish Quirkus Circus, Roscoe Riley Rules #1 and This Book Is Gay but I'm still working on all of them.

Upcoming Book Adventures:
I'm still practicing how to judge the busy-ness of my weeks! In a perfect world, I would finish The Construction Zone and start in (finally) on Children Want to Write and also finish up This Book is Gay, Quirkus Circus, and Roscoe Riley Rules #1. We'll see how it goes!
Check back throughout the week to read these reviews/posts.
