The weekly post where I recap some of the KidLit books I’ve been reading. Ocasionally, I’ll also talk about some adult fiction books as well.
Be sure to check out Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers to see what other Kidlit readers are reading. Because, you know, we can never have too many books in our TBR piles.
BookTube-A-Thon starts today and runs through August 5th! You can see my 7 book TBR here.

I am always on the lookout for great spooky-funny books. This one had be belly laughing. I loved the illustrations and the rhyme was spot-on. Highly recommend.

I love it when Jane Yolen comes out with a bird picture book (and she’s got a few) because I know that the writing will be top notch and there will be fantastic nonfiction back matter. On Duck Pond does not disappoint. The illustrations are beautiful too.

Oh my goodness! What a cute book! I loved the illustrations. There is just so much to see and discover on each page. And the story–one of going unnoticed–is something that I think many kids can easily relate to.

JooHee Yoon has selected a fantastic set of animal poems for this book. Her wonderfully colorful artwork is just amazing. This would make an excellent addition to any poetry classroom.
