April

April is School Library Media Month! So, a slight departure from our usual fiction discussions, the books I reviewed this month are all non-fiction titles related to kids and education. Since end of the year testing is also fast-approaching, a couple of these titles also address issues related to those.

You've Got to Read this Book: Inspiring stories about the life-changing power of books ed. by Jack Canfield
