It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? is a meme begun by Sheila at Book Journey. Kellee atUnleashing Readers and Jen at Teach Mentor Texts have given it a kidlit focus.

It’s Monday!  What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.  It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

Jack: The True Story of Jack and the Beanstalk

by Liesl Shurtliff
Goodreads Summary:  Jack has always been told that giants are not real. But if that’s the case, how do you explain the huge, foot shaped pond in the yard, or the occurrence of strange and sudden storms in which the earth quakes and dirt rains from the sky? When his father is carried away in such a storm, Jack gives chase in the only logical way: by trading the family cow for some magic beans that will give him access to a land beyond the clouds. He arrives to find that the giants themselves have giant-sized troubles. With the help of an overachieving little sister, a magic goose and a chatty cook (who is not interested in grinding human bones into bread, thank you very much!) Jack sets out to save his dad and save the day.
My Book Detectives (4th and 5th Graders) are currently reading this book. Everyone seems to be enjoying it, including me. I treated them all to their very own copy of the book. And even though we have not yet finished the book, many of the students are looking forward to red which will be published in April.

    I think I might have an electronic advanced reader’s copy of Red. Maybe. Must go check. That would be a very good choice to bump to the top of the spring break TBR list.
