Please visit the amazing blogs: Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers who host this terrific meme each week.

Picture Books
I fell in love with this book encouraging the little ducking to take "just one little step".

Beautifully illustrated book about collective nouns. 

For any little one obsessed with big vehicles.

Graphic Novel
Not a new one, but just had never read it. Goos for middle grades.

Middle Grade
I really enjoyed this story. Excellent example of resilience and dedication.

What Are You Reading Friends?


  1. I added Little One Step and Bad Island to my To Read list. I read and enjoyed There Is A Tribe Of Kids, it's a good step about finding a sense of belonging. I read it before I realized there was controversy surrounding it. Hope you have a terrific week!

  2. Ms. Bixby's... Sigh. You should take a look at his Insert Coin to Continue. So different, but equally as good. I liked some kind of courage as well- had a Little House on the Prairie vibe, but the t.v. Show, when there was a crisis every week, not so much the books!

  3. One of my colleagues just finished the Book of Details. She really liked it.

  4. Just finished (and blogged about) Some Kind of Courage - what a great book!

  5. I have A Thousand Splendid Suns, just haven't gotten to it yet. Thanks for all, Gigi!

  6. I loved Ms. Bixby's Last Day! She's the next Mr. Daniels with the way she builds such strong relationships with her students. The Nightingale and the Big Book of Details are still in my TBR stack! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Tribe of Kids is a cool book, I grabbed it at the library the other day. I will have to seek out With Any Luck, I'll Drive a Truck for my toddler-who is rather vehicle obsessed at the moment. :)

  8. I have a vehicle-obsessed grandson, and that, too, was my first thought when I read With Any Luck I'll Drive a Truck. Tailor-made for vehicle crazy kids!

  9. BAd Island (and all books by Doug TenNepal) were popular in my middle school classroom.
