Your Next Read - Super cool way to find new books. Type in a title or type of book (or click on the images on the front page) and get a web of suggested titles. They provide the book blurb from Amazon, too, so you can learn more about it. I have a few students who I'll be using this with to help them "widen" their book interests! Here is a web it created for my fav Elephant and Piggie book. :)

Here's a little giggle for y'all...
Have a wonderful week!!
