The face of a little guy who just read his first "chapter" book! He said to me, "Mom, I'm like a real reader now!" and can't wait to check out another one ❤ #raisingreaders

Monkey & Robot: Friends and Neighbors written and illustrated by Peter Catalanotto brings to life the silly adventures of the two best friends. Robot is overly serious while monkey means everything quite literally. The two friends really prove that opposites attract and can bring out the best in each other!

blurb

Friends and Neighbors: Monkey & Robot portrays a very fun and exciting with no color except on the cover. This book fills up its pages with boxes leaving little to no white space between them. It switches between pages wether they have boxes or not to hold the images. The illustrations bring to live the emotions of monkey and robot.

Lists went out. This is a very dangerous day for the length of all our TBRs😂 @SueK I‘m super excited to dig into your list! I also read the Maus books this year and loved them! There are a few books on this list that are on my TBR, so I can‘t wait to dig into them, and a few lighter books I haven‘t heard of but am thrilled to have recs for! 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

IndoorDame There are also a few that aren‘t really my jam that normally I‘d check out your reviews for to see why they made the list and if that changed my mind, so lmk if you‘re interested in telling me a bit about your thoughts on them. 4d
IndoorDame I thought I‘d read Babel in Jan, but noticed its blurb calls it “a thematic response to The Secret History? and a tonal retort to Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell” Since I‘m rereading The Secret History this month, I think I‘ll read Jonathan Strange in Jan instead as I‘m planning to use it for a challenge prompt next year & save Babel for Feb. I‘ll probably start my #AuldLangSpine reading off with the tagged book instead since it‘s also on my TBR. 4d
monalyisha The tagged book was my absolute favorite read of 2021. I also love reading about everyone‘s planning and thought processes. Hope you enjoy! 4d

IndoorDame @monalyisha thanks! Now I‘m even more excited to start it! 4d
monalyisha I can‘t even tell you how many lists the new memoir (tagged) was on. If left to my own devices, I don‘t think I would‘ve picked it up but now I‘m kind of tempted! And I *do* love memoirs… 4d
IndoorDame @monalyisha I love memoirs too, and I‘ve been seeing that one get stellar reviews for months, but for some reason I‘m turned off by it. But if it was really on that many list… maybe… 4d
monalyisha @IndoorDame I think I read that she was of iCarly fame and quickly wrote it off (so many books…etc) because I never watched the show & it was after my time. 🤷‍♀️ But yes! It‘s been popping up everywhere! 4d
SueK @IndoorDame I love that you called list day a very dangerous day 😂 It is! I‘m just getting home from work so just now looking at your list—super excited! 4d
IndoorDame @SueK yay! I hope you like it! 4d
SueK @IndoorDame I do! I love the variety. There are a few on your list that were already in my TBR and some that I‘d never heard of or would‘ve picked up. And some that I‘m definitely interested in but weren‘t on my radar before seeing them on your list. So, it‘s fantastic! I‘m happy to talk about any in my list that you‘re curious about. I read out of my comfort zone this year so some of mine are not exactly my jam either 😆 but I enjoyed them 3d
IndoorDame @SueK Awesome! I love variety too. That‘s one of the first things I thought about your list. Probably why we were paired :) 3d
IndoorDame @SueK I‘m especially curious to hear what you thought about Jennette McCurdy. I was before the ICarly generation and hadn‘t heard of it or her before this started popping up everywhere. I‘ve seen dozens of stellar reviews of this, but they mostly just say I loved it, her life was inspiring… and something about it the marketing turned me off. So I‘d love to hear what drew you to in. I feel like there‘s something special there that I‘m not seeing. 3d
SueK If you have no connection to or feelings for iCarly then it may not be all that interesting. I wouldn‘t say it was inspiring. More like a car wreck, one of those events you don‘t want to see but can‘t turn away from. It was definitely written for people who have survived having a malignant narcissist parent. Even if you don‘t love iCarly, that would be a relatable connection. The emotional abuse is jaw dropping, as is her ability to laugh it off. (edited) 3d
SueK It did ruin iCarly for me tho. And that was one of the shows I enjoyed with my daughter when she was younger. So, another happy memory shattered. But the abuse Jennette suffered, I‘m glad she wrote the book @IndoorDame (edited) 3d
IndoorDame @SueK Thank you! I appreciate that! It does suck when reality spoils our sweet memories! But I basically feel like it‘s better to know. I actually did have a narcissistic parent, though not a malignant narcissist, and not to the extent I‘d ever be tempted to write a book about the experience, so I expect I‘d see a lot of parallels, but I‘m not sure if I‘d find it relatable. Maybe I‘ll download an excerpt though and see what the writing is like… 3d

Found this little treasure at the library just before a real #snowday. It's a cute little rhyming book full of nostalgia for a good storm.

This would be fun to do retelling with. Also, comparing and contrasting different adaptations.

Another adaptation of the three little pigs story. This version takes a fun spin on the traditional story. Taking place in outer space, three little aliens go on their way to find a planet of their own. It holds onto the themes and similarities of the original story.
