October was a bit of a spending month for me. I don’t really care, but my bank account begs to differ. So I want to apologize. I’m sorry, bank account for emptying you. But my love for books seems to be stronger than my love for money. Plus, I needed a few good ones for this book haul and my November TBR. At least that’s my excuse. ūüôā

Picture Books

  1.  1.  The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Deywalt
  2.  2.  The Colour Thief by Gabriel Alborozo
  3.  3.  The Colour Monster by Anna Llenas
  4. ¬†4. ¬†I know it’s autumn¬†by Eileen Spinelli

I will be teaching English to 3rd graders the next couple of weeks so these books are a reflection of my topic. Can you guess what it is? ūüôā

If you are a teacher and love using picture books for your classes, look out for next Thursday’s post as I will be sharing 5 of my favourite picture books that I’ve used for my English classes.

Looking at this list, I can definitely sympathize with my bank account. It’s quite the list. And it doesn’t feature any Christmas reads. I’ll do a separate post on them in two weeks.

Sadly, I won’t have too much time to read during November, but I certainly hope that I’ll manage to read a few of them. Especially What Alice Forgot and¬†How to Stop Time. Fingers crossed, I’ll actually pick them up.

What are you planning on reading this month? And if you’re participating in Non-Fiction November, maybe you have a few book recommendations for me. I’d love to read more non-fiction, but I don’t really know where to start.

  1. Love the second picture you took, with all the blue bookcovers. Love! Now that I have two little nieces, I really enjoy buying them picture books. And I would love to buy them English ones.

    1. I can’t wait to spoil my kids or anyone else’s kids with books. I have already assembled quite a selection. For my teaching. Because buying books for non-existing kids would be crazy… ūüėõ

Your comments mean the world to me as I love talking to you about the things that are dear to me. So please fire away!
