Ms. Mary's Monday Review

Let the Children March is a great book to read during Black History month!  This book by Monica Clark-Robinson is on a 3.8 A. R. level, and is good for 0.5 point after the test.  If you want to teach your child about what happened in Birmingham during the Civil Rights Movement, please read this book with him, and have a discussion about how we treat others around us.  A visit to the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute would be a great follow-up.

2019 was a GREAT year for new Young Adult fiction.
