IMWAYR: April Showers Mean More Time to Read

1 Comment

IMWAYR is a weekly blog hop with kid lit co-hosts Jennifer from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers. The original IMWAYR, with an adult literature focus, was started by Sheila at Book Journeys and is now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date. It’s a great way to share what you’re reading and get recommendations from others. We encourage you to write your own post sharing what you’re reading, link up, leave a comment, and support other IMWAYR bloggers by visiting and commenting on at least three of the other linked blogs each week.

If April showers bring May flowers, I’d better get a bunch of beautiful flowers for my birthday! At least being stuck inside means more time for reading! There are some amazing books out there in #kidlit right now. Check these out!

Only One, by Deborah Hopkinson and Chuck Groenink

Earth Day is just a week away, and you’ll want this new picture book for the occasion. In Only One, a young person gathers family and friends to teach them about the universe: galaxies, stars, planets, asteroids, comets, and especially our earth. We need to take care of Earth because this is the only one we have.

Things To Look Forward To, by Sophie Blackall

This book publishes tomorrow, and it’s wonderful! Things to Look Forward To is Ms. Blackall’s gift to all of us. When you’re feeling down, just read a page, like “11:11” and “A Cup of Tea.” I’m already sharing this with my daughter, who is looking forward to reading it.

Those Kids From Fawn Creek, by Erin Entrada Kelly

I’ve heard all good things about Those Kids From Fawn Creek and I love Ms. Kelly’s books. I’m starting this one tonight!

It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?

One thought on “IMWAYR: April Showers Mean More Time to Read

  1. I’d love to find a copy of Only One, but I will eventually. You know I’m reading Worser, but next up is Those Kids from Fawn Creek. We are warm & needing that rain you all are having, Jennifer. Thanks for sharing these books!
