It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - 3/5/2018

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

The weekly post where I recap some of the KidLit books I’ve been reading. Occasionally, I’ll also review 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 pile.

written and illustrated by Zebo Ludvicek

This is a delightful book. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful and the story is so much fun. Very inventive way to look at the letters of the alphabet. Highly recommend.

Crown: An Ode to the Fresh Cut
written by Derrick Barnes
illustrated by Gordon C. James

Another beautiful book. The detail in the illustrations is astounding. The rhythm of  the text is so perfect and it really pulls you right into the barber's chair. Highly recommend. 

Night Light
written and illustrated by Nicholas Blechman

I picked this book off the shelf on a whim and ended up loving it. The die-cut lights throughout the book are seriously fantastic. Great for little fingers and kids who are into vehicles. Recommend to anyone looking for an inventive counting book.


  1. I loved Crown, too, and have Mouse on my list. It does look delightful. Thanks for sharing Night Light, too, new to me, also looks great.

  2. I've been waiting impatiently for my copy of Crown to arrive!!

  3. That cover of Mouse is just too adorable!

  4. I have a hold on Mouse -- can't wait to read it! And I couldn't agree more on Crown. Just a lovely book all round. Have a wonderful reading week!

  5. I really am excited to find Crown here in our libraries - hopefully soon! :) We still don't have it at the moment.
