It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

This meme was started by Sheila at Book Journey. The kid's version was started by Jen at Teach Mentor Text and Kellee and Ricki at Unleashing Readers

Once again I had a crazy week! This week has felt like two weeks in one! On Monday we had snow, so we had a two hour late arrival. but I couldn't enjoy it. Over the weekend my parents had trouble with both of their cars. My dad had an MRI scheduled at 7:45am, but I didn't feel comfortable letting them drive in the snow. So I ended up getting up and driving them to the MRI facility. The only good thing about this was I had about a solid hour of reading time!

I finished You Can Fly by Carole Boston Weatherford. Click here for a summary on Goodreads. I just love a book written in verse and this one was great! I learned that there is so much I didn't know about the Tuskeegee Airmen. The verse form allow for a lot of information to be shared without becoming overwhelming. I really appreciated the timeline and all the resources that the author shared at the end of the book. This is one that I can't wait to share with my students. I hope that they will enjoy it as much as I did.


The only other book I read this week was This Book Is Out Of Control! by Richard Byrne. Click here for a summary on Goodreads. In this book we meet up with Bella, her dog, and Ben who has a remote controlled toy. As with the other two books things don't go according to plan. There is a lot of reader participation in this book too. I know that this will become a favorite of my students as the other two books have. 

I have started Jasper and The Riddle of Riley's Mine by Caroline Starr Rose. Click here for a summary on Goodreads. This book will be published tomorrow February 7, 2017. I'm only on page 82 and I am LOVING the book already. Can't wait until I have time to read some more of it!

Happy Reading!!
