New Release Books Your Students Will Love

Leslie Bermel’s session, “New Release Books Your Students Will Love”

Description: Thousands of children’s books are released each year; which do you choose? This booktalk highlights some of my new favorites among this season’s outstanding new or soon-to-be released titles (Fall and Winter ’13). The talk will include discussion of possible classroom uses, target audience, and why these particular books are so appealing. Participants will have access to personally review the titles discussed and will leave the session with a detailed hand out.
