PPP: Leap into Spring with New Books for Teens

Written by Deborah B. Ford

PD ppt leapOn today’s webcast Leslie and I talked about some of our favorite upcoming middle and high school titles for the spring season. From fascinating nonfiction to hard-to-put-down novels, there are plenty of amazing titles to add to your collection. Remember that in addition to providing you with great selections, we are building resources to help you use these titles. Check out the NEW JLG Spring 2016 Booktalks to Go LiveBinder for resources for these and other great JLG titles. JLG BTG titles are added to our Pinterest board and tweeted out by following Deborah B. Ford. Look for book trailers and archived webcasts on our JLG YouTube Playlist. This webcast will be archived and posted on the JLG website at a later date. Your certificate of attendance can be reprinted by watching the archived video for at least ten minutes.

Join us next time on at 3:00PM EST March 17 when our guest, Roger Sutton, Editor-in-Chief of The Horn Book, will join me in discussing the debut author and illustrator class of 2016.
