Hello, good morning, how are you? (sing that in a sing songsy rhyme time voice - ha).
I spent the summer at my library's baby rhyme time with my 7-month-old. It was glorious. However, I do have all. the. rhymes. stuck in my head.
This week is The Week. The week my district goes back to work. We go back Friday, which is a little strange and I predict many teachers will work through the weekend. Kids come on Wednesday. I spent this past weekend in my room because we have family in town this weekend. They have not met Elise yet and I really want to focus all my attention on them.
Well, lets get on with the post! This is the first time I am linking up with IMWAYR and I am very excited! I am hopeful that all of this newfound blogging energy will continue throughout the year and keep me motivated to make time for reading.
IMWAYR is hosted by Jen at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee at Unleashing Readers.
This week and last week I was reading adult books (Jane Green and Liane Moriarty to be exact) but I am still as focused as ever on kid lit. I know I will be reading quite a bit with the kids when school starts so I figure I should get in my adult library books before they are overdue.
I know you're here for the kid lit, so here is what I have on deck and/or have been reading!
A Unicorn Named Sparkle by Amy Young - this was such a cute picture book about a girl that orders a unicorn and gets more than she bargained for!
Wolf Camp by Andrea Zuill - super cute book about a family's dog that goes to "wolf camp" to learn to be a wolf. This book reminded me of The Secret Life of Pets and I think kids will love it!
A Whole New Ballgame by Phil Bildner - this was recommended by Stacey at Literacy for Big Kids
The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner - I'm hoping I can get to this before it is due back at the library. There has been so much buzz about this book!
What are you reading this week?
