#IMWAYR April 14

It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. 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… who knows, you might discover that next “must read” book!

Our Kid Lit to YA version is hosted by Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers.

GREAT IDEA! Check out all of the What Are You Reading? participants for title ideas.

Of course I planned to read more than I actually finished. That always happened. But I did quite enjoy the two picture books I'm going to share this time round.

Both were so fun! Lost for Words would be great as a motivator to students who might be struggling to find their writing voice. Then Duck & Goose are just the cutest things ever. Kind of sickening how cute they are. Plus the story that could be interpreted a bit philosophically if one wanted to. Don't be afraid to go on adventures!

Happy Easter. It's the most comforting thing I know ... that He is Risen.


  1. Thank you for sharing both books, but Lost for Words in particular. Guiding students through the writing process can be trying for both parties - students and teacher. I think having a book like Lost for Words would be perfect for a classroom, or preferably, school library if it helps students work through the frustration of finding their voice.

  2. Hi there Ms. O - these are two unfamiliar titles to me - thank you for highlighting them. Will be on the lookout for them.
