Girl ReadingHaving trouble finding that perfect book? Listen to our podcasts for some great book recommendations. Chatting About Books: Recommendations for Young Readers focuses on books for children in grades K–5. Text Messages: Recommendations for Adolescent Readers provides families, educators, out-of-school practitioners, and tutors reading recommendations they can pass along to teen readers.

 

This month on Chatting About Books, listen in as Emily Manning chats with Judy Young, one of the authors of the Tales of Young American series. Judy discusses her research process and how she looks for “seeds” of history that she can grow into stories. She also shares which time period she would like to visit if she could go back in time!

 

In the world of young adult literature, there are certain authors readers can count on to engage both their minds and their hearts in a good story. Francisco X. Stork is one of those authors. Tune in to Text Messages to hear about Francisco’s novels, including how they explore themes of religious faith and ambition, how his own life experiences are reflected in his books, and how he thinks about the diverse Latino characters he has created.

 

For classroom materials on   other  timely topics, just keep reading! We have materials on George Lucas, the Academy Awards, Raymond Carver, Malcolm X,  and more!
