Ask Nerdy: A Conversation About Book Talks

One of my favorite things to do in the classroom is helping kids find awesome books to read. One of the most effective things that I do to accomplish this goal is to give book talks. In the latest episode of Ask Nerdy, Donalyn Miller and I talk about the importance of book talks, their impact, and we share tips for giving awesome book talks.

You can find the Ask Nerdy podcast on your podcast app of choice, or you can listen to the conversation below in the embedded player.

If you’d rather watch the conversation just click on the video below.

Thanks for tuning in! We’ll be doing another episode within the next week or so. Be sure to subscribe to ASK NERD on Spotify or Apple Podcast.

I recently added some books to my list of AWESOME 2022 books. A lot of these books would be fun to book talk to young readers. Be sure to check out the list, and add some awesome books to your to-read list.
