I noticed that my kids were not quite as interested in using our classroom library as they used to be, so I decided that something had to change. One of my classroom jobs already is the Librarian. I decided to have the Librarian recommend books to his/her friends to read. The only rule was that it could be any book in the library EXCEPT one that I had read during a read aloud. After the librarian drew a picture and wrote the title of their book, they gave a two to three minute book talk to their friends. Of course, I modeled how to hook the audience and not give away the ending. I was so excited how well this worked! Kids were fighting over who got to read the book next!
Also, I just made a cute worksheet to go along with this activity. Click on the picture for a FREE download from my TPT Store. All I ask is that you rate the item after you download it.
