IMWAYR: End of February Reading

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.

Physical Books: I spent time with some elementary library books last week so I could book talk with students. I read Franklin Endicott and the Third Key by Kate DiCamillo and illustrated by Chris Van Dusen and Maybe Maybe Marisol Rainey by Erin Entrada Kelly. These books were perfect to talk about together because they both have main characters with anxiety and worries. Such good stories! I “sold” both books to 5th graders who were ready to read.

Next Up: The Button Box by Bridget Hodder and illustrated by Fawzia Gilani-Williams (due April 1, 2022 from Kar-Ben Publishing). Thank you, Bridget for sharing this ARC. I will pass it along to my #booksojourn friends. For the fun of it, I’m listening to Meet Me in the Margins by Melissa Ferguson and narrated by Talon David. It’s a publishing company/messy-manuscript/mystery rom-com and I’m enjoying it!

It’s MONDAY! What are YOU reading?
