The Book Boys Play Ball
by Traci Swain
Reader up! This week, the Book Boys read Little Rhino: My New Team by MLB superstar Ryan Howard and his wife, former teacher Krystle Howard. And the Book Boys think it’s a home run!
Play this fun video for your class to get your students excited to read the Book of the Week—and to discover how Allister, Elliott, and Max connect to the star of the story, Rhino.
• Elliott practices using his “thinker,” just like Rhino’s grandpa recommends.
• Allister reflects on the way Rhino helps his best friend, Cooper, gain confidence.
• Max tunes out negative distractions while he’s up to bat, like Rhino.
The Book Boys work in different departments at Scholastic Book Clubs. They formed 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!”
