Book Talk Around the Table

Heard around my table yesterday:
  • Have you read (insert countless titles here)?
  • How can we convince administrators and parents of the importance of school librarians?
  • What is the best title for a library media specialist/school librarian/teacher librarian?
  • What if we included a "did you know?" fact about the influence of school librarins each week on the Children's Literature Network website?
  • Imagine how schools would look if inquiry learning were the model for instruction.
  • What topic would interest you most if you were involved in an inquiry experience?
  • How do books like (insert titles here) even get published?
  • Do you think there was a possible reason why the glaring error David pointed out in Robert McCloskey's "The Case of the Sensational Scent" in Homer Price was included?
  • Why do books get published with questionable content for younger and younger readers?
  • Did you read the article in (insert title here) about literacy
It felt good to spend a few hours with others in various positions of the literacy community, talking about important issues and seeking ways to positively impact young people's love of books and information.
