It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
Join Jen at Teach Mentor Texts for this week's link up!
I discovered Winter is Coming by Tony Johnston during my last Cover to Cover visit. This will be a great book to use during Writing Workshop-I love all of the amazing language and the idea of capturing things in a notebook. Looking forward to sharing this one later this fall.
I've been hearing lots about The Lion and the Bird by Marianne Dubuc and was not disappointed when I picked up my copy. This is a great story of friendship that will invite lots of conversation. It reminded me a bit of two of my favorite picture books, South and How to Heal a Broken Wing. Definitely one I'll use to talk about universal themes.
I reread Sisters by Raina Telgemeir this week. I planned our first 3 Books and Breakfast events (book clubs before school around one book each month) and I chose Sisters as the 2nd book. I wanted to include a graphic novel early on and this one seemed to give us lots to talk about. I showed this book trailer to my students on Friday and there was a lot of interest in this book.
