It's Monday! What are you reading? From Picture Books to YA

It's Week 14 of It's Monday! What are you reading? and I don't know what happened! Clearly, not a big reading week for me. I'm getting a little panic-y about the new school year (which starts in a little over two weeks) so I've been concentrating my energies on brainstorming and researching ideas on the web (and by "researching" I mean pinning on Pinterest). I also covered, and am cataloging, new books that have been sitting around forever. I'm sad that my summer isn't over yet but I'm already falling into my school year reading habits. Boo! I have to try to get in as much reading time as I can in the next two weeks!

This week's picture book selection leaned toward nonfiction (except for Ethan Long's book, which was read to me by the author himself at his visit to {pages}). I enjoy nonfiction picture books immensely; there are so many good ones out there right now. I tend to read more nonfiction to my upper graders -- perhaps to their chagrin -- but I think they're the perfect age for getting a good story (with pictures!) that just happens to be true.
