One of my Handouts from the North Carolina School Library Media Association's Annual Conference



I have 45 minutes to share my favorite books published in 2014. In this time frame, it is impossible to share every book published in 2014 that I think you should read and share with your students and colleagues. Therefore, this is not a comprehensive list. I hope you have fun exploring these books and resources.
