It’s Monday; What Are You Reading?


Thanks to Teach Mentor Texts for providing a gathering place for readers.

+-+792672032_140I finished A Tangle of Knots by Lisa Graf. It’s a book that I need to reread.  I was reminded of Savvy by Ingrid Law.

It was a rather fun Sunday as my 9 YO grand girl finished her Meadows’ Fairy book and had her nose in Because of Winn Dixie.

Last week, I read the following books to K-3.  They are part of the 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards for Washington state:


Pluto Visits Earth by Steve Metzger


Out of This World by  Amy Sklansky


Goldilocks and The Three Dinosaurs by Mo Willems

We vote next week on the twenty nominees. What are you reading?
