We drove all night and we're back from Ohio. It's so good to be home. With the cleaning. And the cooking. And the chores. Wait...I think I'll go back to mom's. lol

Joseph Had a Little Overcoat
Joseph Had a Little Overcoat (Caldecott Medal Book) - Simms Taback

I like the story (I read Phoebe Gilman's Something from Nothing earlier this year), but wasn't a huge fan of the art style.

Gmorning, Gnight!
Gmorning, Gnight!: LIttle Pep Talks for Me & You - Lin-Manuel Miranda

I like the idea for twitter. In a book, reading these pep talks all at once is less effective. If you like Lin-Manuel Miranda, it might be worth it to keep a copy around and read one or two at a time when you're feeling down or need a boost.

Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry - Mildred D. Taylor

So I have trouble reading books with injustice in them. There's just so much in the world that when it crops up in my fiction I have a tough time handling it (it's why I had to stop reading Front Desk by Kelly Yang, I just had this overwhelming feeling of dread that her family was going to be taken advantage of in some huge way that I could not handle).

 

Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry deals with some very heavy issues, but the story is so compelling I couldn't stop reading even when that injustice was placed front and center.
