The Guys Connect with Readers from Around the World
by Traci Swain
From rainbow yarn to pen pal letters, there are so many exciting ways to bring people from different cultures all over the world together!
After reading We’ve Got the Whole World in Our Hands by Rafael López, Allister, Elliott, and Max connect friends in England, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, and New Jersey via a chain of pen pal letters.
Play this video for your class to show students how exciting it is to be part of a global community and to remind them that when you open a book, you really do hold the whole world in your hands.
Plus check out this week’s Cooked Up from a Book for free downloadable stationery to get your students connected with pen pal friends.
Please share on Facebook and Instagram how you plan to use We’ve Got the Whole World in Our Hands with your class. The Scholastic Book Clubs community would love to hear from you, so be sure to use the hashtag #ScholasticBookClubs.
Allister, Elliott, and Max are three friends who work at Scholastic Book Clubs and love books—and they want to share the joy of reading with your students! Every week, you can find the Book Boys here on the blog in a brand-new fun, educational, and engaging video about the Book of the Week. Play their videos in your classroom (or at home) to help your students connect to the story and explore the exciting world of reading.
