Max Is Baaaaaaaaad!
by Traci Swain
Play the Book Boys’ funny book trailer to get your class excited about reading The Bad Seed, an honest and thoughtful picture book written by Jory John and illustrated by Pete Oswald.
You know what Book Boy Max is good at? Being bad.
(At least in his daydreams, that is.)
After finding The Bad Seed in his Scholastic Book Clubs flyer, and reading this new picture book, Max dozes off and imagines life as a “bad seed.” Watch this video with your students and see Max make some impulsive choices, realize his mistakes, and then take responsibility for his actions with the support of Allister and Elliott.
How do you teach your students about self-reflection and the importance of making considerate choices? We’d love to hear from you. Please share with us on social media using the hashtag #ScholasticBookClubs.
These three guys from 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—and relate to—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 get kids excited about books and reading.
