Kellee Moye, of Unleashing Readers, and Jen Vincent, of Teach Mentor Texts decided to give It's Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children's literature - picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit - join us! We love this meme and think you will, too. We encourage everyone who participates to visit at least three of the other kidlit book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them.
If you want to know more about what I've been reading, visit my Goodreads shelf.

Words from my spine poems
Last Week in Books:
Highlights: I really enjoyed Sweet Words so Brave. It's a history of African American literature. I appreciated learning about many excellent authors. A Dime a Dozen was a collection of poems by Nikki Grimes and was a sort of memoir. It was very good. I also had a nice time read Juan Felipe Herrera's verse novel Cinnamon Girl.
I'm still reading Miles Morales (A Spider-Man Novel) by Jason Reynolds from NetGalley and am enjoying it so far. I'm still reading Emotional Agility - an adult nonfiction book, but haven't made much progress. I started Goodbye Days too. I'm listening to Afterworlds and am about half-way through. I'm re-reading some books for a committee I'm on so I'm not sure how many new books I'll get to this week.
