GatheringReaders Raising Readers Spotlight

[GatheringReaders] Children’s Book Choices for July-December 2015


Myra here.

I just met up with my GatheringReaders book club participants at the Jurong West Public Library two Sundays ago, 19th of June. Usually our first meeting for the second half of the year has to do with book nominations and a great deal of booktalk as we consider which titles would be great for us to read in the coming months. And just like the previous years, I am extremely grateful that there are book trailers now that I can use for my booktalk. See a snapshot of my gallery of slides:
