Book Room Update

New photos have been added to the Book Room post!  Go there to see some shots of the book room at OWNCS in Astoria, Queens.

And... if you are looking for some titles to refresh your baskets, I have some favorites.  The following is a short list of some titles for character studies and book clubs that I have been sharing lately:

Make Way for Dyamonde Daniel is a great heroine for second and third grade chapter book readers.  This is the first book in a great series by Nikki Grimes.
Make Way for Dyamonde Daniel

Welcome to the Bed and Biscuit is a lovely story of animal friendship involving a cast of characters that warm the hearts of young readers and provide some comic relief as well.  This is the first chapter book in a series of adventures that emergent chapter book readers will enjoy.
Welcome to the Bed and Biscuit

The Magician's Elephant is a beautiful story of magic and hope for 3rd - 5th grade students.  It would make a great book club selection or read aloud to prepare students to have strong book talks.
