What Are You Reading?

“It’s Monday! What are you Reading?” is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It is a chance for book lovers to share their reading accomplishments as well as what is on the proverbial nightstand. She even does a giveaway. Subsequently Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts added an opportunity for those reading kidlit to join the fun. Since I read both I will post to both. Check them out, join the conversations, and discover more great books.

I don't usually post more than once a month and I haven't included any picture books I read. (I read quite a few between my four year old and my classroom.) This week I want to share the following with you.


This is a pile of books I checked out from the library this summer, all being books I wanted to peruse as ones I might want to purchase.

I love the library as I can put books on hold from the comfort of my living room, simply copy and pasting from where I place hold in Amazon when things are recommended. These all became available together.

G thought Guess Again and Where Is the Green Sheep? were delightfully silly, re-reading them often.

I purchased It's a Book and Max's Words for my classroom. If I was teaching the American Revolution and doing the Living Museum from that timeframe  Louisa would be a must.

The following are pictured above, from left to right.

Big Words for Little People By Jamie Lee Curtis

Louisa: The Life of Louisa May Alcott by Yona Zeldis McDonough

It's a Book by by Lane Smith

Guess Again! by Mac Barnett and Adam Rex

Max's Words by Kate Banks

Chocolate Me! by Taye Diggs

Nothing At All by Wanda Gag

Where Is The Green Sheep? by Mem Fox

Sam Bangs & Moonshine by Evaline Ness


  1. Isn't It's a Book great? Lane Smith has such wonderful wit.

  2. I read (and reviewed) Sam Bangs and Moonshine sometime last year - found it in a booksale. It's a Book is hilarious. Thanks for sharing all these titles.
