Today, my dear friend Pernille Ripp, announced the Global Read Aloud choices for 2018!
I have participated in Global Read Aloud from the beginning and it is always one of my favorite events every year. I love how GRA brings all of us together through books, reading and celebrating the wonderful authors and illustrators that bring our readers these special reading experiences.
As Pernille stated about the 2018 choices today,
With an emphasis on perspective, on understanding others, on connecting and change, I feel that all of the books and picture book authors chosen will help us see the world in a new light. Will help us make connections. Will help us build community both within our own classrooms, but also with all the thousands of classrooms that will participate. As usual, I hope you like them, I hope you read them, and I hope you read all of the amazing contenders as well. Deep breath here.
I don't want to reveal anymore. You just have to visit The Global Read Aloud site to read all about the 2018 GRA choices here!
