Sharing a love of literacy with fellow readers and writers

IMWAYR: May Weather Is Finally Here!


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.

May weather is finally here! Sunny at 80 degrees on Sunday and this week is supposed to be nice. I will be outside more, but I plan to finish some titles. I wish you a Happy Teacher Appreciation Week, too! I appreciate all of you! I can’t wait to finish listening to Harvest House by Cynthia Leitich Smith. It’s perfect for high schoolers and Halloween.

NetGalley: If you know me at all, you know that my NetGalley account is neglected much of the time. But my friend, Elly Swartz has written yet another fabulous story that MUST be shared! We have to wait until October 31, 2023, though. (Hey! That’s Halloween! Am I on to a theme here with this post?)

Physical Books: I want to catch up on some award-winners and (again) if you know me, you know I love nonfiction! Seen and Unseen: What Dorothea Lange, Toyo Miyatake, and Ansel Adams’s Photographs Reveal About the Japanese American Incarceration by Elizabeth Partridge and Lauren Tamaki won the 2023 Sibert Medal (nonfiction). Flipping through the ARC I have, I can see that it’s going to be amazing!

It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?

I write about literacy education and my love for reading and writing. My passion is sharing titles I use for school libraries, classroom collaborations, and professional development. My goal is to collaborate, research, and share with other life-long literacy learners. Welcome to my blog!

  1. Hi Jennifer, it’s nicer here, too, glad to be outside! I have “Seen & Unseen” on my list but the other two are new to me. Thanks for those & have a great week this week!

  2. We had Seen &Unseen at the bookstore but I didn’t even take a look inside before we finally sold it.
