#imwayr It’s Monday! What are you reading?! 4.21.14

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).

I did LOTS of reading over spring break…so, needless to say, my break was AWESOME! My two favorite reads from this past week were Five, Six, Seven, Nate by Federle and Counting by 7s by Sloan. You should read them both. Now.

In Print: Yesterday, I finally started reading the newest Origami Yoda book, Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue. These books crack me up and kids love ’em.

Listening to: Mary Poppins by Travers. Would you believe that I have never read this book? I’ve seen the Disney film, of course, but I have never read the story behind the story. My husband and I saw Saving Mr. Banks during the break (which is a wonderful movie, by the way, especially if you are a little in love with Disney like I am) and I really wanted to read the book after watching that movie. The book (like the movie) is so magical and fun…it is hard to believe that the author was not magical or fun. 

At school: Back to reading about birds, doing fun poetry programs, and starting to wrap up the school year (what?!) – there are less than 40 days left. That’s just crazy. 

What are you reading?
