Sharing a love of literacy with fellow readers and writers

IMWAYR: The Two-Week Plan – Thank you, Author Friends!

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.

Thanks to my author friends and Kathy at Brain Lair Books, I have enough to read for two weeks! My plan is simple: read and enjoy these amazing titles!

The Aquanaut by Dan Santat (Graphix 2022), Radium Girls: The Scary But True Story of the Poison That Made People Glow in the Dark by Kate Moore (Sourcebooks 2020), It’s the End of the World and I’m In My Bathing Suit by Justin A. Reynolds (Scholastic Press 2022), We Can: Portraits of Power by Tyler Gordon (Farrar Straus Giroux Books 2021), and Jump At the Sun: The True Life Tale of Unstoppable Storycatcher Zora Neale Hurston by Alicia D. Williams and Jacqueline Alcántara (Atheneum Books for Young Readers 2021).

I read Consider the Octopus by Nora Raleigh Baskin and Gae Polisner previously, but I had to read it again for Earth Day. If you haven’t purchased this one yet, make sure to add it to your list. Jeremy and his adventures traveling with Sidney Miller (no, not the famous researcher, but the 12-year-old Sidney) to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch will leave you giggling AND wanting to save the ocean wildlife.

It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?

I write about reading and literacy education. My passion is sharing titles I use for reading and writing workshop teaching. My goal is collaborating, researching, and sharing with other life-long literacy learners. Welcome to my blog!

  1. I have added Consider the Octopus to my want to read list, but alas, my local library doesn’t even have it on hold.
