It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 01/15/2018

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA! 
It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. 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:
This week I read Amina's Voice by Hena Khan, Twelve Days in May: Freedom Ride 1961 by Larry Dane Brimner, and finally finished Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds. I read some of Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and picked up Pedagogy of the Oppressed by Paolo Freire but haven't started it yet. For picture books, I finally read After The Fall by Dan Santat and Love by Matt De La Peña with illustrations by Loren Long. Both amazing.

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
I'm excited to zone in on Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Pedagogy of the Oppressed this week. I also have I Am Alfonso Jones and Yummy, two graphic novels which I've really been looking forward to and have heard good things about. 

Also, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., I found a digital version of Martin Luther King and The Montgomery Story, the comic book Peanut and I heard Representative John Lewis talk about. He said it inspired him in his work as an activist and is in part why he believed in Andrew Aydin's idea for the March graphic novels. We'll be making signs for the Women's March next weekend and I thought reading this together might be interesting along with looking at other images from the Civil Rights Movement and making connections to today.
