Exciting News.....Our Teachers and Students Will Love That We Can Get Random House eBooks and Others Now From Mackin!
Over the last couple of years they have asked for more and more popular trade fiction titles. Teachers want to add more and more titles to their book groups and classroom collections of the titles that they use within their curriculum. Students want to read them on their own too.
During planning at the beginning of the school year, one of the titles the junior high teachers needed to order was The Watsons Go To Birmingham. They will read this in January together as a class.
Mackin, Random House Partner on eBooks for School Libraries.
I was also excited to see the cover of the book they featured was The Watsons Go To Birmingham! I would love to get as an eBook for our students.
Trade Fiction eBooks from Mackin. I spent over a hour looking through the different publishers websites on their site yesterday.
Random House link, you can browse several popular eBook Title Lists from them. This is a very helpful way to be able to search all of the eBooks that Random House has....the options are amazing.
I am excited to show the teachers....and the students too.....the new options from Random House and others for eBooks that we can add to our collection at Van Meter.
Knowing that Random House and Penguin have merged, I'm hopeful that next Mackin will have many of the great and popular Penguin eBooks available for K-12 access.
It will be fun to see how these are used within the classroom and with our kids.
