We want our students to love reading. The Nerdy Book Club helps me learn about new books, find classics that our students will devour, and gain insight on how to inspire students to love reading. All the posts are available at their website: https://nerdybookclub.wordpress.com/ Readers can also sign up for a daily email with the most recent post. The entries are written by a wide variety of contributors who bring different points of view. I have found the Nerdy Book Club to be a wonderful way to help me connect children and books.
You can even attend Nerd Camp in July in Michigan. Spend two days with authors, illustrators, and other teachers who love children’s and Young Adult books. The conference is free! It will be July 10-11, 2017, in Parma, Michigan. http://nerdcampmi.weebly.com/
