Need a quick and easy library lesson for those long winter days? Well, "Snowman Wisdom" dictates that kids need to read all winter long, so how about some ready-to-go book talks to get your kids excited about reading?

Market some of your library's early chapter book titles and provide reader advisory services at the same time with this easy winter resource! My slide show (in PPT and PDF format) highlights the covers of 9 early chapter books in a variety of genres including humor, fantasy fiction, science fiction, adventure fiction, ghost story, etc. To help you share just a snippet of each book, I've included bright, colorful PPT slides and a slide-by-slide script.

Hint: Here's the tradition in my library. At the end of every book talk lesson, I always bring out a copy or two of each book (usually inexpensive paperbacks from Scholastic or Amazon) and let my classes have a quick "rock paper scissors" competition to decide who will get the honor of reading his/her favorite choices first! (I think my classes absolutely LOVE book talks because of the rock, paper, scissors! Then, I remind the others how to reserve a turn within our library's OPAC software.) The following week, the "winners" give their opinions of the books before renewing them or passing them on to another student. It's "snow" much fun! ;)

The titles that are highlighted in this resource include:

Rainbow Magic : Michelle the Winter Wonderland Fairy

Captain Awesome : Has the Best Snow Day Ever?

George Brown, Class Clown : 'Snot Funny!

Diaster Strikes : Blizzard Night

The Rescue Princesses : The Snow Jewel

My Weider-est School : Dr. Snow Has Got to Go!

Eerie Elementary : School Freezes Over!

Zoey and Sassafras : Caterflies and Ice

I Survived : The Children's Blizzard, 1888
