Old. And after a close read, it has gotta go. This summer, I have embarked on a project and it probably won't get finished this summer, but at least I'm starting. I am going through one shelf at a time and reading every book. Not only does it help
Me make decisions if a book is still suitable for an elementary library, it helps me book talk the collection and present books to readers, both teachers and students in a knowledgeable manner. Previously, I book talked. And did so in a knowledgeable manner, BUT I probably plugged the books I knew in high rotation. Now I am getting to know ALL of the collection. It's a big job, but I think I am up to it. And my daughter is getting to read a wide variety of books along with me. Tonight, we read The Marshmallow Incident. I was familiar with this one. But I love it and didn't want to miss the opportunity to share with you all out there in the world. I'm hoping to create lists of books l, like a wordless picture book list, as well as pairings. So, tonight, I present a pairing of terrible misunderstandings. In other words, the way most/all World Wars and Civil Wars begin.
