Book talks for a short week

27 Nov

We only had 2 days of school last week 🙂

I was Thankful for that.

As a result, I only book talked two books and I felt like I had to make them good ones.


I started the week with The Reader. I enjoyed it so much I felt I had to share it with my students. Thinking about the excellent world building led me to talk about Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass.


First published in the US in 1996, most of my students were unfamiliar with the series, so I hope I have turned some of them on to it.
