Once a month, the teen librarians from the Normal and Bloomington public libraries visit at lunch time to join me in booktalking to students. I wrote about this a couple of weeks ago at Kirby’s Lane, but I thought I would share this month’s installment here.
For December, we chose the theme Adventure Time! This is a theme we haven’t done in a few years, and it was a fabulous pick. What I like most is that it gave us quite a bit of freedom in choosing books, as there are fantasy adventures, sci-fi adventures, survival adventures, scary adventures, graphic novel adventures, and more.
I had to start off with this clip because, well, it’s middle school.
Below are the books we shared over the four lunch periods. We had time to present about six books per session, and we mixed things up and shared different books with different lunch hours and grades. A wild time was had by all!
