One way to commemorate the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday on Monday, January 18, is to learn more about the experiences of people who were part of the struggle for civil rights. In recent years, a number of highly engaging books have been written for middle and high schoolers on this subject. Descriptions from Baker & Taylor.
With the end of the year drawing towards its close many are using this time to reflect back, take stock, put things into perspective, and make 'best of' lists. If you're interested in catching up with reading, have a look at EarlyWord's downloadable spreadsheet. If, however, you're ready to put 2015 behind you and look squarely toward the future of 2016, I have some reading suggestions for you. Expect to see the titles in the online catalog beginning in January. (All descriptions are provided by the publisher)
Whether you are in your favorite chair, alone by the fire, or snuggled up with the kids, it is that time of year.
