I read The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot for my adult group. Highly recommended. I also read The Alchemist which my 11the grade boys at BCS raved about. Brings me back to my Khalil Gibran and The Prophet phase... It's a journey, people. It's a journey...
I read a darling biography of Jacques Cousteau called Manfish to my 3rd and 4th grade 12:1 kids at
BNS. They enjoyed it a lot. Nothing quite like getting a group of fascinatingly different types of learners who all engage in the story in different ways.
Went to a NYC DOE library conference with Susan last month. Saw Joy who was there with Brooklyn Public Library Summer Reading! Some schools are doing amazing things with technology -- predominantly with personal devices like iphones. The future is here. When will New York City public schools catch up?
For those of you who really enjoyed Please Ignore Vera Dietz, I highly recommend another A.S. King book called Ask the Passengers.
