It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 12/30/2013

I'm joining Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers for It's Monday!  What Are You Reading?.

This year I am using winter break/holiday #bookaday to read some titles that were buried in my TBR pile.  Now or never!  Some highlights from the past week...
Boris on the Move by Andrew Joyner

Boris for the Win by Andrew Joyner

The Family Book by Todd Parr 

Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Ballet by Jane O'Connor

Flora and the Flamingo by Molly Idle

Plant a Kiss by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Bedtime for Mommy by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

 Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman

Thomas Jefferson Build a Library by Barb Rosenstock

The Tree Lady: The True Story of How One Tree-Loving Woman Changed a City Forever by H. Joseph Hopkins

Plus Two Books Written for Adults: (This was a biggie for me!  My reading life consists almost exclusively of reading professional books, blogs, and books that can also be read by children under the age of 12.)

Bossypants by Tina Fey

When Did I Get Like This?: The Screamer, the Worrier, the Dinosaur-Chicken-Nugget-Buyer, and Other Mothers I Swore I'd Never Be by Amy Wilson



  1. I'm going to have to read Fortunately, the milk. It looks/sounds adorable.
    Mrs. Brown Loves Bookworms

    1. I definitely recommend it! I think it would be wildly fun to read aloud to students! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. What did you think of When Did I Get Like This? I think I have that on a Pinterest board of books to read...And it seems like a book I might connect to. :)

    1. I think I found it via Pinterest too! I enjoyed it -- a light read that reminded me a lot of the blog we used to read Rants from Mommyland (was that the name?). I actually checked it out from the library, and I will be returning it later this week. :-)
