This week, we will be talking about the Monarch and Bluestem nominees. SO excited to share these books with our students! Please check your child’s backpack on library day for a copy of the book list, as well as the BUZZ.
Students have been checking out books from both lists already and have also been signing up to be put on the reserve lists.
Each week from now until the last week in February, we will be posting book trailers or videos for each book on the Monarch and Bluestem lists.
First up: 2015 Monarch nominee, “Creepy Carrots” by Aaron Reynolds and illustrated by Peter Brown. Brown shares his inspirations for the illustrations in the book.
There are many fiction books about animals on this year’s Bluestem list. Check out the trailer for “Chained” by Lynne Kelly.
