For this weeks “its Monday what are you Reading” post I read four books. I read Take Me out to the Yakyu by Aaron Meshon, Tito Puente Mambo King Rey Del Mambo by Monica Brown, Chicka Chicka 1,2,3 by Bill Martin Jr, and Lost Star by Patricia Lauber.
The first book was Take Me out to the Yakyu this book was about a little Japanese boy whose grandparents take him to a baseball game in American and in Japan as well. Throughout the book he compares the two baseball games and how even though they are a baseball game there are a lot of differences between the two countries when it comes to baseball and celebrating. Overall I enjoyed the book and it had good illustrations.
The second book I read was Tito Puente Mambo King Rey del Mambo. This book was about Tito Puente the Mambo King and it gave a little short autobiography of Tito Puente and how he became the Mambo King. This book was a bilingual book so it gave me some practice with reading Spanish and I learned some new words as well.
The third book was Chicka Chicka 1, 2, 3. This book is about numbers and how the number 0 wants to get on the tree but doesn’t think there is a place for it.
The last book is Lost Star by Patricia Lauber. Lost star is about Amelia Earhart the first female to fly around the world. Amelia was a very daring girl and didn’t agree as to why women couldn’t do everything men could do, she obviously proved everyone wrong because she was the first female to fly around the world. It also goes into the disappearance of Amelia and how the world reacted and tried really hard to find her. I liked this book it was very inspiring to see Amelia followed her dreams and how committed she stayed regardless of all the risks she knew she was taking.
