This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl, asks us to list the top 10 books of 2018 so far. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I’ll just pull Instagram pics of my favorites. I may have cheated a little and included 11. Also, this isn’t all.
#bookaday After the Fall: How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again by Dan Santat. #SNRtbs I picked this one up because of an @NCTE award and I’m so glad I did. The prose is succinct, but the story is absolutely stunning. Children may easily get the message about getting back up again after a fall, but it’s so much more than that. There are subtle messages about vulnerability embedded into the images that it took a few readings for me to catch. Absolutely beautiful. #stickynotereviews
I am #currentlyreading Rebound by Kwame Alexander. It’s the prequel to The Crossover, which is one of the most read novels in verse in my classroom. This one is about Chuck Bell (Josh and JB’s dad) before he’s this mega hoop-star and awesome dad – when he’s dealing with the loss of his own father as a child. I’m excited for this.
