A6: I love the idea of asking the students what books they are enjoying! Also, keeping our McG book club reading YA books will help, and I have been following some literacy based FB pages that usally has some great recommendations too.

A3 It's vital, not only that children have access to great fictional books, but up to date non-fiction material, be able to research information online, and use text to make comparisons, develop opinions on topics, & share thoughts/ideas w/others.

A4 Before reading Game Changer, I thought book volume was key to classroom libraries. Now, I think more about books that are engaging and motivating to our students. How can we build up libraries with books children can't wait to check out and take home?

A2 In reflecting on classroom libraries, how might we begin to have regular discussions on what books or series are relevant, trending, and reflect the diverse world we live in? On the flip side, what books might need to be weeded out?

A2 Partnering with parents and students alike to create a team where students know the common goal is for the student to succeed is crucial. We can do this through supporting families' book ownership like the suggestions on PG. 46-47

A2 As Game Changer says, "It's important for us to share our passion of books through book talks." Book talks between partners are crucial because in many ways talking about the book brings the story to life and building understanding.

A6: I would also like to read young adult with my daughter and do a book talk with her. I like young adult better then adult books.

A4 I used to think informational text was key to student success now I am wondering how fiction might help students become more empathetic and self regulated

A1 I completely agree, the idea of students owning a new book. That increases their ownership not only of the book but of their reading life.
