Mehso-so

Spent today weeding the front yard and rearranging house plants for maximum summer sun, all with Ronia‘s company.

On one hand, I would have loved the slightly old-fashioned survivalist feel of this book as a child. I loved the kids-on-their own trope of the Boxcar Children, etc.

On the other hand, it has some pretty questionable ideas about gender politics and family patriarchs that make it seem older than its 1981 pub date. #audiobook #kidlit

An excellent middle grade book about the building of, passengers on, and the sinking of Titanic! I've been fascinated with this disaster since I was about 10 so this was a wonderful find! The photos of the artifacts are great for kids who are more visual and there are also photos from Ballard's expeditions and a section on current efforts to remember those lost. #middlegrade #raisingreaders #kidlit #teachersofLitsy

Love Like Sky | Leslie C. Youngblood

Today, i “helped out” at the ACT Lit #LitCircle featuring Love Like Sky by Leslie Youngblood, facilitated by Proff Tokeya Graham, hosted at The Avenue. It was amazing to see these kids engaging so fully with the book. They asked great questions. And we got to talk about how when bad things happen, it can change your outlook on life and what kids can do to feel better when they get down. #RepresentationMatters, y‘all. #KidLit #ListenToKids

I finished this sweet #kidlit book this morning. Igor supervised. I liked Ivan‘s artistic nature, and his little friend Bob, the tiny dog who was determined not to be domesticated. 🦍🐕🐘

Here‘s my #LittenLoveBingo choice for “inspired by #PetsOfLitsy”. It‘s also a #BlameItOnLitsy purchase, since I‘ve seen so many posts with people loving it here! I picked it up at a library booksale sometime last year. Sietje supports reading about animals 🐕🦍🐘

Summer book and summer beer! Wish I had had this #kidlit #graphicnovel on hand when a patron asked me the other week for a GN mystery. This has tween surfer girls, ghost guardians, a seaside town dealing with a new resort, and a gentle mystery. Light summer fun. ☀️ 🏖 🏄‍♀️

Impulse supermarket buy! Lol, both kids enjoyed this story about Ada who hates ballet but finds her groove in karate! Short & sweet, great for K or 1 readers.
