There is something exciting going on at Mackin Educational Resources today!
They just rolled out the new Mackin Booktalk!
The new Mackin Booktalk is the perfect place to go to look up the wonderful collections of state-nominated titles. There are two easy ways to search for the award books you want to find.
On the left-hand side there is a drop down menu to search each state book award.
different book award categories for that state pop up. You can click on the book award......I wanted to see the Iowa Goldfinch Award books for 2014-15.
This is one of my favorite book awards each year....especially this year with so many beautiful picture books in the category!
One of my favorites is Boy + Bot by my friend Ame Dyckman. I just love this sweet little story.
And one of my favorite features of the new Mackin Booktalk is how you can click on a specific title and it then goes to a page about the book and author.
This is connected from TeachingBooks.net and they always have the best information about books, authors, illustrators and so much more.
Your readers can rate the book and see other book recommendations.
They are also able to share the titles using Facebook, Twitter and email....How fun to have that sharing feature available within Mackin Booktalk too!
You can visit the Mackin Store to download the book award posters. It is easy to download and print the posters.
As you can see, Mackin Booktalk is the place to be to learn more about all of the award books throughout each state. I just know you will love it.
Make sure you share it with your teachers, librarians, parents, and students too!
