Read Across America

Read Across America (Week 3)
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 Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska & Nevada!

Readers' Realm

Reader's Realm: Sports
with Lisa


OK, this is it; we’re finishing up SPORTS.  Keep commenting or join in now. 

Readers’ Realm will be taking a break for a while.  Keep watch as it might return in the fall. 



As you finish your book, did it come down to one big game or one big play?  Tell about it.  If not, how did the sport figure into how the book ended?  Please include the title and author of the book you’re reading in your post. 

In my book, "Gabby Garcia’s Ultimate Playbook" by Iva-Marie Palmer, Gabby ends up with TWO games/competitions at the same time, baseball and talent show.  She manages to do her best at both.  In the baseball game, it doesn't come down to her having the best, win-all play.  I like that.  She is part of it, but only a part.  Baseball is her thing, and she finds a way to bring baseball into the talent show as well.  Plus, she learns a hard lesson; she is not always the Golden Child, and that’s OK.  

Remember, look for Readers’ Realm to return in the fall.  In the meantime, keep reading!
