Following are links to sessions we did with a group of seven to fifteen year olds. Yes, the books are pictures books, and sometimes intended for four year olds, but a good picture book has much wider appeal than simply little children!
Additionally, my rationale (for this our foray into bookCLUBing) included the idea that even if some of the students had not come across the book, we could read it easily enough together – something a little more difficult to do with a novel.
