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.
From now on, we're going to post our It's Monday! What Are You Reading? posts at 2:00 am eastern, 1:00 am central, 11:00pm pacific. It just gives us a little more time to get our posts up and we hope you'll understand. Other than that, everything will stay the same. We appreciate you understanding and if you have any questions, please let us know.
Last Week's Book Adventures:
This week I finished listening to We Are Okay and read Write From the Start: Tapping Your Child's Natural Writing Ability by Donald Graves and Virginia Stuart. I find myself still thinking about We Are Okay...that book made me do a lot of thinking. And I got Write from the Start from the library. I know how pivotal Don Graves' research on writing and writing instruction was. Even though this book was published in 1985, it was really interesting to read and think about what still holds true today. I also read more of Aru Shah and read The Magic Tree House #1: Dinosaurs Before Dark with Little Bean for our mother-son book club.

Upcoming Book Adventures:
This week I'll be reading and hopefully finishing Aru Shah. I really want to get back to Poet X and I have When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon to listen to on audio. I also have Lily and Dunkin by Donna Gephart on audio that I started with Peanut so we might go back to that too.
Check back throughout the week to read these reviews/posts.
