The Newbery Challenge: Missing May

I believe this is the first time Colby Sharp and I have been together when a Newbery video went live. We are in San Antonio, Texas, for the International Reading Association conference. Colby is moderating The Serious Business of Writing Humor: The Importance of Funny Fiction in the Classroom

Day: Today

Time: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: San Antonio Convention Center - Ballroom C3

Description: Have you noticed that some of your students really turn on when you make them laugh? Join some of the funniest authors we know, including Michael Buckley, Andy Griffiths, Laurie Keller, and Devin Scillian, to learn how to use humorous fiction titles to motivate even the most reluctant readers – especially elementary and middle-grade boys!

Please visit Colby's blog to watch his video. 

Travis Jonker designed the cover on the right. Please borrow Missing May from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
