Drop everything! We know the school year is hurtling towards an end and your work-load trebles in November but take a moment to read about this month’s Lenny’s Book of Everything by Karen Foxlee. We passionately feel that this book will become a classic of Australian literature and will be read by primary and early secondary students for decades to come. What’s more, teachers and librarians will enjoy it every bit as much as their students because, like Wonder by R.J. Palacio and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, it is true cross-over fiction, transcending age classification. There is an array of support materials for you to use in the classroom or library: including Teacher Notes, Reading Group Notes, a stunning trailer, reviews by kids, and a fascinating blog about how the book’s eye-catching cover came about so just click on the image below and enjoy!
