An excellent middle grade book about the building of, passengers on, and the sinking of Titanic! I've been fascinated with this disaster since I was about 10 so this was a wonderful find! The photos of the artifacts are great for kids who are more visual and there are also photos from Ballard's expeditions and a section on current efforts to remember those lost. #middlegrade #raisingreaders #kidlit #teachersofLitsy

WanderingBookaneer @Peddler410 : I‘m middle school, but I don‘t limit my classroom library to middle school books only. For middle school I recommend 4d
Peddler410 I don‘t either. I‘ll put books in my library that review at 9th grade, anything starting with 10th grade I‘m a little more picky about. I have Lily & Dunkin — it was wonderful. 4d
Emilymdxn Amazing! Great thing to be doing and the books look so lovely 4d

I'm fangirling today!!! Got to meet this amazing author at #nerdcampnj I am so impressed with all she does for the Kidlit community and the world at large. If you don't already you need to know Ann Braden. Oh, and her book is great too! #librariansoflitsy #teachersoflitsy

Working on end of year book inventory for my class library can be interesting. I get frustrated by the books that disappear, and I've learned the most likely to disappear are Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. Yet, sometimes random new books appear that no students claim. For example, I had one copy of the tagged book and now there are three. It's also great to see the shelves full and neatly organized for at least a few days.

A short, creative graphic novel that made for a good break from my normal reads. Besides it was about time I got it returned to the friend that loaned it to me. I like how unique the characters are and the way the neighborhood kids came together. If you ever played pretend as a kid this book will take you back to that. #graphicnovel #childrenslit #teachersoflitsy #vhsreads #viloniareads

mdm139 I once led a debate in class and a kid won his side by comparing the situation to chewbacca. It was the Wookie defense. I don't even remember what the debate was about, but I was mighty impressed. 1w

Return of the Shadow | J. R. R. Tolkien

I should really be grading finals, but it was a pretty long day at school so I‘m enjoying a chapter of Tolkien instead. I‘m still several days behind the schedule, but I‘m appreciating the discussion of the Third Phase. At the moment, I think I‘m still most intrigued by the curiosity about and development of Trotter as a character.

Daisey @JazzFeathers That was definitely a fun little twist of an idea. 5d
