November 01, 2016
On today’s webcast I chatted with Sara Pennypacker, Barbara O’Connor, and Candace Fleming. From a giant squid, to a girl who makes the same silent wish every day, and new characters for independent readers, these new books from authors you know and love will fly off the shelves.
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 2016 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. Thanks to Jeanette, BTG will now be added to the book detail page. This is a direct link to the resources in the binder.
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 for our next national webcast on at 3:00 EDT when Deb and I will share some of our favorite debut authors and illustrators from the fall season. This webcast is for everyone!
Here are the titles from today’s webcast:
Wish JLG Category: A+ Intermediate Readers
Eleven-year-old Charlie Reese has been making the same silent wish since fourth grade. A stray dog and the love of an aunt and uncle just might make it come true.
Everyone knows the name Buffalo Bill, but few know what he did. This, the first significant biography of him for younger readers in many years, explains it all.
Giant Squid JLG Category: NEK+ Nonfiction Early Elementary
A strikingly illustrated, poetic look at the enigmatic life of the astounding and elusive giant squid.
Peter regrets that his father made him let his pet fox go free—Pax won’t be able to survive in the wild. So Peter sets off from his grandfather’s house, determined to cross hundreds of miles to find him.
Waylon! One Awesome Thing JLG Category: I Independent Readers
The boys in Waylon’s class form rival recess teams, but Waylon has no interest. He wants to be friends with everyone—well, maybe not Baxter, who is so bad he allegedly went to jail!
