It's Monday! What are You Reading?

Jen Vincent at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee Moye and Ricki Ginsburg at Unleashing Readers cohostIt's Monday! What are You Reading weekly on their blogs.   To see what others are reading and recommending each Monday, or to participate, be sure to head over to these blogs.

I am in the middle of the season for report cards, parent conferences, and testing so I haven't had much time to read children's books but I did make time for the new Lunch Lady book!  I am a big fan of the Lunch Lady graphic novel series by Jarrett Krosoczka so of course I was excited when the tenth finale book came out in the series: Lunch Lady and the Schoolwide Scuffle

My students and I have been awaiting this book's arrival and although we were excited to read another about another lunch lady adventure, we are sad that it is the finale. It has been spreading through my classroom quickly and kids are trying to figure out what their new gadget is on the last page - Jarrett Krosoczka, please give us a hint!  If you have not had the pleasure of reading the books in this series, add them to the top of your TBR because you will not be disappointed! 

Happy Reading! :)


  1. I read a lot of these last year because I won more than one during a blog tour! Didn't know that it's ending. Thanks for telling us, Melanie. Hope the week, though busy, goes smoothly!

  2. I just finished report cards and now head into conferences so I know how you feel. Busy, busy, busy! Lunch Lady titles are so popular in my room I need to get this tenth title!

  3. I saw somewhere that Amy Poehler will play Lunch Lady in a movie! I may have to see that one :)

  4. Hello there Melanie. We were able to find one of the titles from the series during a book sale here in January, and my 12 year old daughter read it in one sitting - practically devoured it. Glad to see that the last book is out. Will hunt down the other titles as well.
