It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (March 18): 03/18/19
No photos of my art this week. The piece I showed you last week is still waiting for me to work on it. I got caught up in other projects and there was a full day of work on Friday.
The last two Fridays I've worked full days at the gallery to co-teach four different field trips. Each field trip lasts two hours with a half hour break between them. Each class has between twenty and thirty students plus their teacher and adult volunteers.
Reading-wise it was a quiet week. I finished four books. They were all excellent. My favorite of the lot was Comics Will Break Your Heart by Faith Erin Hicks, with Swap'd by Tamara Ireland Stone coming in a close second.

It's a neat program. I'm lucky to be part of it.

Great art projects! Our hail didn't stick on the ground...thankfully.
Enjoy your books and your week, and thanks for visiting my blog

I have never seen so much hail. Nor have I seen it stick around so long.

Great assortment of books. Those kids do some quality art too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

They certainly do.

Hey girlfriend, I beat you today ^__^. How cool, I didn't know you worked at a gallery. What a fun job and how awesome to be able to pass on your love of art to another generation. I admit when I was a teacher, I bypassed the art which I regret and have jumped right into the artistic pool myself.

There was one teacher in elementary school who made the effort to include art in her lessons. I'm pleased that the school districts around here include so much time for art, crafts, and music.

Isn't it a shame real life has to get in the way of our art? How neat that the gallery has these field trips for children.
Love so many of your books and want to add them to my list: Comics Will Break Your Heart, The 91-Storey Treehouse, and Yellow Brick War are of special interest.
Hope you have a great week. Thanks for visiting my blog.

The gallery is a local gem. Comics Will Break Your Heart is excellent. Before you read the 91-Storey Treehouse, you should go back and read the previous ones. The first one is the 13-Storey Treehouse.

I've been really curious about The Lost Children Archive, so will look forward to hearing your thoughts.
Comment #14: Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 20:04:00
I'll get it reviewed shortly after I finish it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love Meg Wolitzer's books for adults and didn't realize she wrote for young people as well.
Comment #16: Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 20:10:00
It's her first one, which she co-authored with an author who specializes in middle grade fiction.

That looks like it would be a fun job. :) Kids are a blast. Have a great week!

It's fun and exhausting.
