IMWAYR: January 2023 is Starting Off Successfully

I’ve been reading! I’m continuing A Rover’s Story, Love From Mecca to Medina, and Apartment 713, and I’ve already read some picture books that I wanted to get to in 2022. Here’s a new one you may like and recommend to your readers…

It’s Monday! What are YOU 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.

IMWAYR: Nonfiction and Banned Books Week

There’s so much to read right now! Last week, I read a bunch of nonfiction picture books — I just LOVE picture books! I’m also celebrating Banned Books Week — Look for my “Banned Books Focus” posts this week.

I’m still reading Turning Point by Paula Chase (so good!) and I need to get to Vanderbeekers: Lost and Found by Karina Yan Glaser next!

It’s Hispanic Heritage Month, so I’m continuing to seek out those titles. Next up is Letters From Cuba by Ruth Behar (author of Lucky Broken Girl).

I’ve read some nonfiction books to pass along to my granddaughter when I see her. Voting, remembering Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and studying climate change are topics of interest.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s Banned Books Week! Keep reading whatever you want to read, no matter the content, and don’t let anyone stop you. Censorship of any kind is wrong, and I’m happy to celebrate all reading this week.
