This week’s (and next week’s) book talks

11 Dec

I only worked two days last week. I missed one day for my appointment with the orthopedist. I missed two for snow days. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say “ice days”.

I actually book talked three books on the two days I was at work. We’ve started an information writing unit on teen activism, and I selected books to support that. On Monday, I talked about Chelsea Clinton’s book:

On Wednesday, I shared two books on the same teen. The first is a picture book I thought they might be familiar with; the second the YA version.
