This year, I thought that every month, I'd share the titles I am most looking forward to in the coming month. So, today, I thought I'd share the books I am excited about that are being released in January. Here they are!
Nelson Mandela by Kadir Nelson--I love anything by Kadir Nelson and am excited about this new picture book biography about Nelson Mandela. I love adding picture book biographies to my collection and I love that Kadir Nelson has done this one! Can't wait to see it!
The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier. I don't allow myself much time to read adult books as I spend so much time reading children's and YA books but I will definitely make time for this book. Tracy Chevalier is one of my very favorite adult authors and this book looks to be another good one. I love that it is set in Ohio too-an added bonus!
A Splash of Red: The Life and Art of Horace Pippin is one I am interested in because I love this author and this illustrator. Jen Bryant and Mellissa Sweet are two of my favorites so I can't wait to see them team up on this picture book biography.
ISTE called FROM INSPIRATION TO RED CARPET. The book shares the story of a district who hosts a film festival for students. I am excited to read about the power of video production, the projects that are possible, and more. Definitely one I have been looking forward to that I think will impact my classroom!
January looks to be a great month for books!!
