Oh my word! What a start to the year!

Here's what stuck out to me from the JANUARY 2019 picture book releases that crossed my desk.

I wonder if you read and loved any of these? And I wonder which books weren't included on my list for one reason or another that definitely...

Happy new year!

This Picture Book Recap series was something new I tried in 2018 as a means of staying on top of my TBR pile as well as giving a quick nod to those titles I couldn't stop thinking about from month to month (You can see the whole series using this link)....

Okay, so.... apparently October is a big month for book releases I read double or triple what I normally read in order to make the picture book recap for October. Here's a portion of the book pile from when I was starting to work out which 16 would make this list.

I hop...

Woah! Some seriously outstanding books are coming out this season. And just as I put finishing touches on this recap of my favorite September picture book releases I have an absolute mountain of October books to tackle (and we're already midway through October!) so bes...

School is off to an amazing start. Seriously, I don't know how I got so lucky to teach the students that I do. But as we're preparing to talk about banned books I wanted to share the books from August that really left an impression. 

Here's what most stuck out from...

It's been a busy, wonderful summer break. We've traveled. We've been home bodies. We've explored our library. We've read mountains of books.

Here's what most stuck out from the JULY picture book releases that crossed my desk.

Summer Break! WOOHOO!

Time to finally give some attention to that TBR pile (or... maybe... make it even taller!).

I read so many books from June and had quite a difficult time narrowing down this list. Two titles that I loved which were intentionally left off are WE DON'...

Yeah. We're more than halfway through June.

Yeah. I've been holding onto this list for a few weeks.

HECK YEAH! We're on summer break and I'm catching up on my posts.

This list of books includes so many truly exceptional, unique, and special books, there's no doubt at leas...

Read any good books in April? I sure did. 

This eclectic set of stories includes one that will inspire, many that will elicit giggles, and more than I few I think you'll want to read over and over. Many of these books come from small publishers and may not have made the...

Some of the books that published this month are ones I hold very, very close to my heart. There are books about family, of learning where you come from, and looking toward the future. There are books about gaining knowledge and of stewardship for this earth. And there...

WOAH! A whole lot of amazing picture books came out in February. I've hand-selected a set of books my family and I really enjoyed. These books have staying power and some of them were passed off to teacher after teacher as I was asked recommendations for books on Read...

February 7, 2018

I read a bunch of awesome picture books in January. Some ended up getting featured with their author or illustrator on the podcast. A lot of them were shared with the students at my school. And many were discussed and loved and reread at bedtime or travel time in the c...
