It's Monday! What are you reading? #1

It's Monday! What are you reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys.  The kidlit version is  hosted by Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts

Last week, I read and reviewed these two wonderful books.

Kizzy Ann Stamps by Jeri Watts
Too Tall Houses written and illustrated by Gianna Marino

I read these two book, but I haven't reviewed them yet:

Maggie's Chopsticks written by Alan Woo and illustrated by Isabelle Malenfant about a young Chinese girl learning to eat with chopsticks.

Unspoken, a Story from the Underground Railroad by Henry Cole, a story told entirely in beautifully expressive illustrations about a young farm girl who saves a runaway slave.

And lastly, I am planning to read these books this week (and hopefully review them)

Two Picture Books:

Cold Snap by Eileen Spinelli, illustrated by  Marjorie Priceman

The World's Greatest Lion by Ralph Helfer, illustrated by Ted Lewin

Paula Danziger's Amber Brown is Tickled Pink by Bruce Coville and Elizabeth Levy
The Wicked and the Just by J. Anderson Coats
Every Day by David Levithan
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater


  1. This is the third time I've seen Unspoken on IMWAYR just this week. Need to check it out!

  2. I loved Every Day.

    Unspoken is such a uniquely beautiful picture book. I'm glad to see it getting some recognition.

  3. Unspoken is definitely the most eye catching book today here for me though all the others sound interesting too. I am adding this to my TBR
