It helps students grow as readers but also as writers, mathematicians, learners and thinkers.”
(Sullivan & Brown, 2013)
When you read a good book, it’s only natural to want to share it. Booktalks are simple, informal presentations designed to inspire others to read a book you enjoyed.
Booktalk! is a no-cost reading program supported by Scholastic. Booktalking is a powerful way to connect children to books and feed them reading choices. Booktalks help them develop their reading, writing and presentation skills.
Why include Booktalk! in your reading program?
- Students respond to teachers and peers who are enthusiastic about specific books.
- Students are more likely to read and complete books they choose.
- Students who read books for pleasure are more likely to become adults who read.
