It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 09/16/2019

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:
Gah! I'm not even sure where last week went! I read lots of picture books which is super exciting but I didn't read much of my novel. I'm reading One Is For Piñata by Roseanne Thong and John Parra to kick off Hispanic Heritage month. My 7th graders looked at the CCBC diversity stats for Latinx #OwnVoices books published in 2017 in children's literature last week and I asked our local librarian to pull Latinx books for us to explore this week. 

Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15th - October 15th and I'm excited to look at what it means to be Hispanic versus Latinx and to hopefully be able to grow my students' thinking when it comes to understanding Latin American history. Sounds like I need to share some of my ideas and resources in a blog post...

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
I'm planning to keep reading The Other Half of Happy by Rebecca Balcárcel and Keep Going by Austin Kleon. AND GUTS COMES OUT ON TUESDAY! I was talking to my cousin's daughter about it over the weekend and we're going to see who can finish it first and then we're going to get together to talk about it. Cannot wait! And I can't wait to share it with students!

Last Week's Book Adventures:
I finished The Bridge Home this week and LOVED it. I also started The Other Half of Happy. I'm enjoying it so far and feel super connected to it since the main character is half Guatemalan and growing up mostly speaking English in the US.
