#imwayr It’s Monday! What are you reading?! 10.7.13

What Are You Reading? was first hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. If you’d rather follow folks who are reading books for grown ups, you should follow her Monday meme. I am  participating in the kidlit version of this meme (although sometimes I actually read books for grown ups).

In Print:  Living With Jackie Chan by Jo Knowles. I read See you at Harry’s by Knowles last summer and LOVED it. So, when I was in Austin last week and in need of a good book to read, I was glad to stumble on the Austin Young Adult Book Festival, where Jo Knowles was speaking! I did not get to hear her speak, but I DID get to purchase this book…signed! It is about a teen who has fathered a child – he moves in with his uncle, who is obsessed with Jackie Chan. There is a couple with a baby living upstairs and the babies cries are very hard for the teen take…not sure why just yet – I’m getting to that part soon, I think!

At School: Skunkdog by Jenkins Cute picture book about a dog who becomes friends with a skunk. I love reading this when my kindergarten students are learning about the 5 senses, which is exactly what is going on their classrooms this week.
