Watch this video featuring Elliott, Allister, and Mariam, who filled in for Max this week. Mariam works alongside the Book Boys at Scholastic Book Clubs and was thrilled to read the exciting adventures of the Animorphs for the first time!
The trio presents the engaging student-teacher activities and resources on the blog for The Invasion, the first installment in the Animorphs series, by Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant (a husband-and-wife team writing together as K. A. Applegate).
• Mariam loves the way third grade teacher Adam King uses The Invasion to teach students about making predictions in Book Talks.
• Allister gets creative with the science-based writing prompt in Cooked Up from a Book.
• Elliott shares his three favorite fun facts about Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant from an exclusive Behind the Scenes interview—including which animals the creators of Animorphs would morph into!
The Book Boys (and Mariam!) work in different departments at Scholastic Book Clubs. They decided to form a group to share a wide range of books and introduce students to the world of reading. Each week, the Book Boys select a book to feature. They make stories come alive by creating fun, educational, and engaging videos for teachers and families to use in the classroom or at home.
The Book Boys, like everyone at Scholastic Book Clubs, want all kids to love to read and be proud to declare: “I am a reader!”
