Announcing the DENbrarian YA Book Selection for May!

Discovery’s DENbrarians are getting their YA “book on” every month!  Wanna join us?

Welcome to our book club- EVERYONE is invited! You do NOT have to be a Library Media Specialist to join this group– …you just have to love great Young Adult books!  We began last month with The One and Only Ivan.  All books selected will be in the upper elementary to middle grades range and our group will soon move to to online connections, Skyped author visits, virtual discussions, resource sharing, a student project showcase, and hangouts starting next Fall.

Click here if you’d like to participate in gathering and sharing resources related to each month’s book selection, or  follow our main DENbrarian Pinterest Board which will contain archives of each month’s materials.


May’s selection:

Wonder by R.J. Palacio.

“You can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.”

It is a life-changing book, I promise.

Here’s the link to the Pinboard

Sign up to be a DENbrarian and you’ll be added as a “Pinner”!

    This is a great idea! Thanks for doing it!

    I loved Wonder. As a reading teacher and a special eduaction teacher, this book touched my heart.

    I cannot believe it was passed over for the Newbury Award!

    Wonder is such a fantastic read. It immediately became one of my all time favorites. It has such a powerful message to deliver. I believe it should be on every upper elementary reading list.

    Love the idea for this book club. Thanks for sharing.
