It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 12/24/12


Jen and Kellee host a weekly meme called "What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA." It encourages you to share what you read during the previous week and to plan what you're going to read/review during the current week. Thank you, Kellee and Jen, for hosting this fun meme.



Will Sparrow's Road by Karen Cushman. Clarion Books,  2012. 

Please click here to read my interview with Newbery Medalist Karen Cushman. 



I re-read the Sharp-Schu Mock Caldecott winners


I Have a Dream by Dr. Martin Luther King; illustrations by Kadir Nelson. Random House, 2012. 

 As soon as I finished listening to Kadir Nelson talk about I Have a Dream, I walked over to my bookcase, pulled it off the shelf, and re-read it. I'm glad I did. It is one of the most beautifully illustrated books of the year. If you haven't read it, please get your hands on a copy--ASAP.  


Four Newbery Medal winners :)

  3. I enjoyed seeing your Mock Caldecott winners. I have read I Have a Dream and LOVED it! Will Sparrow's Road popped up as a Goodreads rec for me. Now it's on my TBR shelf. Looks like a great week of reading ahead. Happy Holidays!
