So, as I commented in class, I was quite surprised that all these different resources were still in the shelves of Rosenthal while all of you are polishing your read aloud and booktalk activities. The resources in the syllabus are just a starting point, so I was hoping you were using your reference skills to explore other resources.
Here you have the list of books I brought to class: some books come from Education and others from LIS, so beware of the different approaches to the task. Also, some authors might be usual aspects and there are some surprises embedded in the links. Some of your classmates have chosen blogs that complement this selection, especially if you are having a hard time choosing a book:
