Video Inspired by Four Favorite Thanksgiving Reads
by Jamie Turak, Traci Swain, and Kelly O’Donnell
This year, the Book Boys are grateful for this week’s four Dollar Deal holiday reads.
Get in the holiday spirit and tune in as the boys share their favorites of the week: ’Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving, No Turkey for Thanksgiving, Too Many Tamales, and Strega Nona. (Don’t worry—no turkeys were harmed in the making of this short!)
Which of these titles is just right for your classroom? Don’t miss them this holiday season!
These four guys, who work in different departments at Scholastic Book Clubs, formed a book group. Each week, they choose a new book to read together. Then they meet, discuss, and create fun and entertaining videos to help kids discover titles offered by Scholastic Book Clubs.
While the Book Boys come from diverse backgrounds and were definitely different growing up, they all have one thing in common: they really want to keep kids excited about books and reading.
