It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 02/26/2018


I am currently listening to The Girl Who Drank the Moon.  I was engaged right away in the beautiful storytelling and characterization!  

I am still working through stacks of African American literature in preparation for my multicultural literature course I am teaching this summer. 

I have piles of picture book biographies of artists and of inspiring women.  

Here are the books I read this week and wrote about.  Click on the link for the post and all the books related to the topic.  


I highlighted one of my favorite picture book authors…


I enjoyed learning more about these two great women…


These adorable selections will make you smile…

  1. I am very much looking forward to reading The Girl Who Drank the Moon. I've checked it out from the library three times, I believe. But due to such high piles, I've always had to put it back. I love the cover and the synopsis and imagine it's lovely (especially based on all I've heard from other reviewers) so I hope to get a jump on that next month. Can't wait! Have a happy reading week!

  2. Jabari Jumps is the perfect picture! Emmanuel's Dream is definitely inspiring.

  3. I've read them all but When Harriet Met Sojourner, which looks delightful. I did love Emmanuel's Dream very much. Thanks!
