A big thank you to all my fellow bloggers. All of the books I read this week, I have found by reading their posts.

Picture Books-Fiction
This book is sooo much fun! Young readers will love to listen to it and will want to look closely at the funny pictures. Grades K-4.

I loved the first Moose book and this one is a 
winner as well. Grades K-4.

This book is beautiful and a must-read for any 
young dancer.  Grades 1-4

A sweet story with a powerful message. Grades 1-4.

Nonfiction Picture Books
Yes, another amazing animal books by Steve Jenkins.  Grades 2-5.

I love Ivan and this book is a wonderful tribute to his life. All grades.

Still Reading...
I am embarrassed to put this up again. It is wonderful, but last week was conference week-too tired to read much. 

Currently Listening
Loving this one!

What Are You Reading Friends? 


  1. Another moose book-hurrah! And I just read Ivan's story, too. What a wonderful one for the younger kids. I just finished a book about migration, so will look for Migrant-great to have a picture book. Gigi. I imagine you're happy that conferences are behind you. Have a great week!

  2. Those are great books! The Night Gardener is our next Newbery Club book! Loved your nonfiction choices for this week - so much to be learned in both books!

  3. I love every single one of your books Gigi! I think The Night Gardener is one of this year's best books. I do need to read Migrant. Thanks for highlighting that title.

  4. I loved Creature Features this week too. How do Jenkins and Page keep producing all these terrific books?? I need to get my hands on the new Moose book--I loved the first one so much. Beholding Bee is at the top of my TBR--very intrigued by the topic. Migrant was lovely--very much over the head of my son, but I loved it (and the art was exquisite). I so rarely read a book I don't enjoy on some level anymore, and that's all thanks to my amazing PLN!

  5. I didn't know there was new Moose book! I have a student who loves all things Moose, so I'll have to share it with her. :-) We picked The Night Gardener as our common read in our Mock Newbery Club. Excited to read it! I LOVED Beholding Bee! Thanks for sharing great titles!

  6. Oh my goodness - every book here is either a favourite of mine or on my TBR list near the top! Love Ivan and the new Jenkins title. And Beholding Bee was on my favourites of the year list last year! Such an amazing story. Enjoy!
