Product Description
Inspire your students to pick up a good book by hosting a BOOK TASTING event in your class today! It's easier than you think with this ready-to-go activity!

Your students will have so much fun "tasting" new books across genres.
You'll receive lots of printables that will make the set up easy. Just download, print, and you're ready to host your Book Tasting!

You can use this with a large class or in small group. I just hosted a Book Tasting in intervention. I had my intervention kids rotate to only 4 tables and they were able to preview 4 books from 4 different genres in 30 minutes! My struggling readers got inspired to read and to check out new books!
