The books of month for October are the librarian's choice!! Hehe! I promise they won't disapoint!! These books are amazing reads and you can even share one of them with your students and your very own children. These two books will definitely make you think. These books are about two girls who have significant personal struggles and are doing their best to navigate in a world that is often not kind. I hope you enjoy these books and "read it forward" and share these with other readers. The first book, Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper, was on the Bluebonnet Award list a few years back and is a PERFECT read-aloud for your students. The second book, Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern, is geared towards middle school readers and beyond. Happy reading!! :)
