Recently, a student held a book to her chest and asked if I had any more books by Jo Knowles. My answer was no, and this girl walked away sad. I knew I needed to read the one Knowles’ book I had in my classroom library.
I have added Jo Knowles’ other books to my classroom shelves. Her descriptions are vivid, and her characters are real.
So, this Monday, and this week, I am having a Jo Knowles’ bookfest. My student, Raquel, can have them when I’m done!
