I'm officially picking up this meme today and will be posting my reading each Monday hereafter. I'm excited to take part in an iniative that encourages reading and sharing with others. Thanks to Teach Mentor Texts and Book Journey who originally started the meme. I'll be reviewing picture books, middle grade books, and adult books. I'd love to hear what you're reading, too!
The Princess and the Potty by Wendy Cheyette Lewison
This book might be the turning point in our quest to potty train said daughter mentioned above. She very much relates with the princess who does not want to use the potty in this book. However, she ASKED for a pink potty and now has it in her room. She is actually excited about the thought of using it. It's been a very thrilling 24 hours in our household...
Odd Owls and Stout Pigs by Arnold Lobel
This is a fun collection of poetry written for young children about owls and pigs doing zany things and acting in nonsensical manners. Natalie loved it! It's got a nice lull to it and it's fun to read.
MIDDLE GRADE/YOUNG ADULT
What I love about the Hattie books are the strength and determination of a young woman in the early 1900s. Hattie left Montana in the first book and ventured to San Francisco in the second book to follow her dream of being a reporter. She's a plucky, self-sufficient female that doesn't have to rely on the good graces of men to find her way in the world. Bravo Hattie and Kirby Larson!
