This time, we have focused on baseball, finding nonfiction that kids like these young Dodger fans would love! We have found general introductions to baseball, biographies about famous players, guides to help young players hone their skills, and a fascinating history of the Negro League.
We have prepared a concise summary of our recommendations -- feel free to download, print, and share it with teachers, parents and other librarians. Our goal is to show how librarians can help all students find engaging, interesting books to read.
Are you heading to the American Library Association annual conference in Las Vegas next month? Come see us on Sunday, June 29th at 10:30 a.m.!
Huge thanks to my fellow Common Core IRL colleagues. Again, here's the full batting line-up of our posts on baseball for Common Core IRL: In Real Libraries. Here's our line-up this week:
