Congratulations to Wonderstruck!
I presented the winners of the ALA Youth Media Awards to one third-grade class, two fourth-grade classes, and two fifth-grade classes. Wonderstruck taking home the Schneider Family Book Award received the most positive reaction and the loudest round of applause.
From the mouths of my students...
*"Yeah! I knew it!"
*"I love Brian Selznick."
*"I'm adding that to my Animoto project."
*"I'm going to read it again."
*"Wonderstruck is the best book I've ever read."
* "Fifth grader A: "What disability is in Wondstruck?" Fifth grader B: "Ben and Rose are deaf."
*"I saw that sticker on Rules."
Borrow Wonderstruck from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
Love hearing your students' comments - I was cheering, too. I loved WONDERSTRUCK.ReplyDelete
I just finished Wonderstruck a few days ago and I was in love!! I'm so happy to hear that it's already being recognized!ReplyDelete
I loved Wonderstruck just a tiny bit MORE than Hugo Cabret! Your student comments are heart-felt. This is a great video with Mr. Selznick-thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
