[BHE 245] More International Titles from Book Depository


Myra here.

Last week, I shared the first part of my book loot from Book Depository courtesy of our research project that looked into building a database of multicultural/international titles for social-and-emotional learning that would be shared with teachers here in Singapore. This week, I am sharing even more titles that arrived during the Christmas holidays – the postman almost appeared like Santa Claus really, with his sack filled with books.

    When I get my tax refund, I’ll probably spend a few bucks on Book Depository. ❤
