It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA!
It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme started by Sheila at Book Journeys and now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It’s also a great chance to see what others are reading right now…you just might discover the next “must-read” book! Kellee and Jen, of Teach Mentor Texts, decided to give It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. Since my books this week are kidlit in nature, I'm linking up here.
These two books, like the other ones in the series, feature children from the named country introducing us to that country. We learn what they call their parents, what children's names are popular, what they eat, what they like to do for fun and what holidays they celebrate. All the books follow pretty much the same storyline making it easy to compare countries.
Captain No Beard and his pint-sized crew of imaginary sailors are off on another adventure. This time Captain No Beard learns the difference between being a leader and being the boss. He learns that being stubborn is not a good thing.
According to the Amazon blurb, Cave Kiddos is a fun book about four Paleolithic children who share the experience of developing and learning important words and concepts. Join Alk, Haha, Lala, and Zee as they discover the world around them. However, if I hadn't read that, I'd never know it. I must be in the minority; it got 22 Amazon reviews and the lowest was three stars.
