A fun announcement!

Here’s a silly (and informative) video on HOW TO CHOOSE A GOOD BOOK. 32 “expert” (kid) reviewers give you the low-down on choosing good books by answering five simple questions.: How does the book look? How does it smell? How does it taste? How does it sound? How does it feel?

Check it out!!!! (And leave a comment, if you liked it.) And feel free to share the link . . .
