This Week’s Griggs Greats – for 7th grade

December 3rd, 2007 by Brian Leave a reply »

With all of the podcasting and iMovie DVD burning, it was nice to do a booktalk today.

I was stressed a little, since reading time was a little crunched. (But the podcasts were awesome! I was walking around with the school’s iMac showing different people – “Now that’s a podcast!”)

So, for all of the crunched librarians out there, here is a list of Griggs Greats guaranteed to add a couple more patrons to your hold list. (At least that’s what happened today.)

  1. The Contender by Robert Lipsyte
  2. Transall Saga by Gary Paulsen
  3. All-American Girl by Meg Cabot
  4. Romiette and Julio by Sharon Draper
  5. Atherton by Patrick Carman
  6. Star Wars: Shadow Academy by Kevin J. Anderson
  7. Cover-Up by John Feinstein
  8. Lion Boy by Zizou Corder
  9. The Last Book in the Universe by Rodman Philbrick (read it before it’s banned)
  10. Young Man and the Sea by Rodman Philbrick
