It's Monday, What Are You Reading?-January 16, 2017

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

It was a picture book week for me this week. 
Click on the cover to get more info about the book on Goodreads. 

I know several little girls who would LOVE this book!
In my opinion ages 3-8 would like it best.

Sweet, adorable, lovely! A book about finding friendships right in front of you. Ages 3-8 in my opinion. 

The librarian at my public library recommended these 
last two for me to read. 

Cute! Sort of a story of not knowing you want something until it's gone. Ages 5-8

So some might think this one is in poor taste, but I found these poems about how these animals "bought the farm" to be very funny. Ages 6-10 

Still Listening

Up Next? Not really sure right now. 

What are you reading friends?


  1. Uni the Unicorn looks really cute. I'm not familiar with Last Laughs. It sounds unique!

  2. The Friend Ship and Pete & Pickles are both cute friendship books for kids. Uni the Unicorn and Last Laughs are both on my To Read list. I should look for them at my library. Have a terrific week.

  3. I haven't read any of these adorable-looking picture books, and your post has convinced me to add all of them to my to read list! I hope you're enjoying Bone Gap--I read it several months ago and really loved the writing and the unique plot line of the story.

  4. Thanks for the picture books, Gigi-noted! I loved Bone Gap, and will watch to see what you think of it! Have a good week!

  5. I want to read last laughs. I loved to read this kind of slightly twisted humour. Like Linda B, I'm looking forward to reading what you think of Bone Gap.

  6. Last Laughs sounds super fun. I enjoyed Bone Gap a lot.

  7. Last Laughs does sound hilarious - those who think it in poor taste should just lighten up, I think ;) Could not get into Bone Gap - saving it for another try this summer.

  8. Pete and Pickles sounds like a great book to help kids think about bigger themes in text. We will definitely grab a copy of Last Laughs - Looks like one that some students will really enjoy.

  9. What do you think of Bone Gap so far? I really enjoyed that one.

  10. Uni is super popular at our store. Kids are always thrilled when I tell them there's a sequel coming out.

  11. Pete and Pickles is one of my absolute favourite titles of all time.
