It’s Monday! What are You Reading?

Mon Reading Button PB to YA

It’s Monday so join in the fun and share what you are reading with the community at “Teach Mentor Texts“.

Here’s a few of the picture books I’ve read over the last week.

Blueberry Girl by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Charles Vess.


A special book, one that I really enjoyed. It is written as a prayer, originally for his goddaughter.

Tessa’s Tip-Tapping Toes by Carolyn Crimi  and illustrated by Marsha Gray Carrington


Tessa can’t help but tap dance. Love the language throughout the book. A charming book.

Tea Party Rules by Ame Dyckman, illustrated by K. G. Campbell


What will happen when a real bear crashes a tea party? A charming book.

Waynetta and the Cornstalk by Helen Ketteman, illustrated by  Diane Greenseid


This is a Texas fairy tale, based on “Jack and the Beanstalk”. The language was definitely western and even the giant’s “fie-fi-fo-fum’s speech was altered. Children will enjoy it; I found it just okay.
