Read Across America

Read Across America (Week 2)
by Stacy

Read Across America is a year-long celebration of all things reading! Starting in August and ending in July, Read Across America is about making time to read with kids and showing how reading is important and fun!

If we are going to create more readers, more writers, people who feel included and recognized, and people who understand that the world is far richer than just their experiences alone, kids need books that are as diverse and complex as the society we live in.

Join us each week as we share more Books Across America! Enjoy the comforts of reading in your own state, or travel the map to explore something new! 

Check out this week's book recommendations, featuring stories set in the District of Columbia,  Georiga, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky & Louisiana!

Reader's Realm: Sports
with Lisa

Play on, sports! Keep commenting or join in now. 

A new discussion topic will be posted each week from now through March 24. Then on to a new genre/category.   

Feel free to post as much as you like.  Click on the title of the post to get to the comment page. Be sure to read others’ comments and respond to them.   Let’s get to it: 

What has been the best sport’s action moment of your book so far?  Describe it as best you can. Please include the title and author of the book you’re reading in your post.

My book, "Gabby Garcia’s Ultimate Playbook" by Iva-Marie Palmer, has been using a lot of sports analogies for everything.  Gabby sees the world through her sport, baseball, so it seems natural she’d describe everything that way.  The best sport's bit so far is kind of funny and sad.  Gabby wants to be a part of her new school's baseball team, but they’ve already started their season.  She goes to a practice waiting for a moment to run on the field and show her stuff.  When she does this, to catch a fly ball, she plows right into another player, giving her a bloody nose.  It’s funny because I can see someone doing something like this to get herself noticed, but it’s sad that this is what she thinks she has to do instead of talking to the coach or asking to play.  
What’s happening in your book?
