How to OSOB

Thomas Jefferson E.S. in Yorktown Heights, NY explains how they set up their very first One School, One Book program.  Among the highlights…

  • they gave copies of Charlotte’s Web to their bus drivers, too
  • they previewed their first title with a sneak-peak commercial
  • parents have been sending in pics from home of their families reading together
  • teachers post students vocabulary work from Charlotte’s Web outside their classrooms
  • one student is quotes as saying she and her family as so busy they don’t get to see or talk to each other – except when they are reading Charlotte’s Web!

Watch their new School District video!

And follow the rest of their OSOB experience with Charlotte’s Web on Facebook.

Our newest title…

Is a doozie!

Chock full of humor, hijinks, lessons learned the hard way, ornery sisters, demanding teachers, mouth-watering cream puffs, New York Yankees, and choice Shakespearean curses culled by a 7th grader.

You can find all that in Gary D. Schmidt’s The Wednesday Wars – and that’s why it’s our newest Middle School title – designed to provoke and intrigue adolescents with all manner of interests – and their teachers – and even their parents.

You can read more about the Wednesday Wars here.
