It’s Monday. What are You Reading?

Mon Reading Button PB to YA

 

This past week I have continued reading and studying fiction and non-fiction picture books. There is such a wealth of these awesome books. 

Here are a few I read:

Julia Morgan Built a Castle by Celeste Davidson Mannis

746059

Interesting biography of the first woman to enroll in the school of Architecture in Paris. She became famous for her buildings that withstood the San Francisco earthquake. and the Hearst castle.

 

A Nation’s Hope by Matt de la Pena

7931925

This biography of Joe Louis made the boxer come to life and highlighted his special personality.

 

 As Good As Anybody by Richard Michelson

2909656

Martin Luther King, Jr. and Abraham Joshua Heschel led such different lives, but both came together to fight discrimination. Both faced great odds but proved they and all of us are as good as anybody else ( a message that needs to be heard by everyone!)

 

Say Something by Peggy Moss

87045

Too often people use the excuse “it’s not my problem” to do nothing. The issue of bullying is looked at through the lens of a young girl who comes face to face with it after refusing to speak up other times. Another message that needs to be heard – we must speak up against racism, discrimination and bullying.

 I also finally read “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” by Ransom Riggs.

9460487

Loved this quirky book and am anxious now to read the sequel.

  1. Hi Beverley! Hope you are doing well! These all look like terrific books, especially “Say Something”-will certainly look for it. I have Miss Peregrine… Still haven’t read it, & didn’t know another was coming out. Thanks for sharing all these. I know I will enjoy the biographies!
