Webcast Recap: Cardinals, War, and an Accordian: Fall Titles for Elementary Readers
Written by Deborah B. Ford
August 31, 2017
On today’s webcast Betty Ann and I talked about the some of the fall forthcoming books for elementary readers. From two cardinals to war and an accordion, you’ll find the new releases to be worth the wait. With the addition of new categories, Spanish Elementary, Read Aloud Plus, and Emergent Readers Plus, you’ll have even more wonderful books for your young readers. Remember to add some Plus categories to your membership so that you receive even more books in the fall—just when you need them most!
In addition to providing you with great selections, Junior Library Guild is building resources to help you use these titles. Check out our new JLG Booktalks to Go Fall 2017 LiveBinder. 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 Playlists.
