IMWAYR: “Ditto” and a “Brand-New” Picture Book

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.

I’m still reading the stack I gathered last week. The Aquanaut by Dan Santat is a fabulous graphic novel and every student is going to love it! I’ll need more copies in the fall, and I hear there’s more to come from the author. We Can: Portraits of Power by Tyler Gordon is stunning. The way the colors and lines bleed together to form a famous face…Wow! Get a copy of this title to keep!

NetGalley: There’s a brand-new book coming in August (Charlesbridge) called Brand-New Bubbe by Sarah Aronson and illustrated by Ariel Landy that’s wonderful! When a new addition to the family comes to visit, a young girl isn’t so sure about her. “I already HAVE Noni and Gram.” But Bubbe makes the best matzo ball soup. “But my other grandmas make soup, too.” Mom finally introduces a new concept to the child: Family isn’t only blood relatives. You can make up a family of all kinds of people, brought together by love. Preorder this one for Grandparents’ Day.

It’s MONDAY! What are YOU reading?

  1. Can’t wait to read Santat’s latest graphic novel. He’s having such a prolific year again.
