It’s Monday! What are You reading?

Mon Reading Button PB to YA

Time to share some picture books, both fiction and non-fiction I have been reading the past week. Jen at “Teach mentor Texts” hosts this fun meme.

Balloons Over Broadway – written and illustrated by Melissa Sweet


I enjoyed this boigraphy of Tommy Sarg – the creator of the balloons for the Macy parade. Both writing and illustrating, Melissa Sweet created a wonderful story.

The House That Baba Built by Ed Young

Ed Young has created an interesting look at his early life  in his childhood home in Shanghai, especially during WWll. Stunning illustrations as well.


M is for Mischief by Linda Ashman and illustrated by Nancy Carpenter

This book is writing in poems and is an A to Z look at naughty children. 3 out of 5 for me.


Fiesta Fiasco by Ann Whitford Paul and illustrated by Ethan Long

I enjoyed this fun book at how a group seek to buy gifts for a friend – but it is not as you would think. loved the use of Spanish throughout.
