Weekly Bookish News: Week of 5/1/17

WeeklyBookishNewsImage

As always, this is a duplicate of the newsletter I send my K-12 school district staff every Friday morning ~ a short and sweet round-up of literacy news and happenings that caught my eye, along with a few books to highlight and my elementary read alouds for the week. If you want to know about ALL the middle grade, YA and adult books I read, please hit me up on Goodreads! That’s where you’ll find the good, the bad and the ugly. All picture books are on my Instagram

Favorites from around the web:

A few books to highlight:

How to Raise a Mom by Jean Reagan – new picture book that would be perfect for Mothers’ Day discussion

Posted by John David Anderson – must-read new mature middle grade (teachers & admin need to read!)

Windfall by Jennifer E Smith – great new YA perfect for a wide-range of ages due to innocence of content
