I’m still on book cover sharing for the time being. But first… in school library news last week, I was surprised to find this article in my Facebook feed this week. The surprise came from the fact that the two Texas school districts mentioned are ones with which I have an intimate history. I attended Leander Independent School District as a student from 2nd grade into high school. Then years later I became a classroom teacher for the Keller Independent School District (and later completed my school librarian internship there). In any case, we are pretty much guaranteed that these two books will have a HUGE sales spike in coming weeks (since banning is one of the very best promotions)!
If this is your first visit to my blog, welcome! Today is Monday, and I regularly participate in a weekly #IMWAYR meme. Kellee Moye of Unleashing Readers and Jen Vincent of Teach Mentor Texts decided to give Kathryn’s (at Book Date) “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” meme a kidlit focus, reviewing books in children’s literature (picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, or anything in the world of kidlit). If you enjoy this type of reading, join us every Monday to share what you’ve been reading!
I’ll have to gush over these books in future Goodreads reviews over the December holidays. And at that time, I may come back here to copy/paste to coordinate. That said, if you aren’t yet familiar with these titles, please head over to Goodreads to read the publisher’s notes. It was an EXCELLENT week finishing these!
