This Week’s Peanut Gallery
These Peanut Gallery posts are where we put up whatever we’ve found around the web responding to the latest BOB news. Be sure to let us know in the comments if we’ve missed yours and we will either add it here or put in our next Peanut Gallery post.
Thank you, TeachingBooks, for created a fabulous free list of multimedia instructional resources to help enhance the fun and reading of this year’s contenders including “everything from author name pronunciations to book trailers and discussion guides. Plus lots of opportunities to hear from authors themselves via Meet-the-Author book readings and movies!”
The librarians at the Blue Ash branch of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County in Ohio have created some great BoB materials. Guess what — you can do the very same at your institutions!
