Best of 2015 – 259 Inservice

Welcome to my friends at USD 259! I’m happy to be part of your inservice today for both library staff and English faculty. We’ve rustled up titles that have won awards, flown under the radar, and much much more. Check out the slides below for the titles we discussed:

MG booktalks best of 2015 – Copy (Grades 3-5)
MS HS booktalks 2016 best of 2015 – Copy (Grades 6-12)

You’ll notice I’ve included recommended ages/grades from the Big Four review journals in the bottom right of each slide, along with any starred reviews noted. If I couldn’t find a book jacket with the book’s medals affixed, I have tried to remedy that with a medal or logo to the bottom center of the screen. Hopefully I didn’t miss anything!

I hope you and your students enjoy trying some of these titles. Don’t forget – if you want us to come out and talk up summer reading with your students now is a great time to lock us in for dates in April and May. Call or email your nearest branch today!
