2018 Sakura Finalists

The Librarians’ of Japan met May 24th to select the finalists for the 2018 Sakura Medal.  A GREAT BIG THANK YOU to all of my students who were test readers and helped me select the books I nominated yesterday…many of your recommendations made this years’ list!!! And a special thank you to a student from 5F who bravely book talked The Last Kids on Earth to all of the librarians attending the meeting yesterday…you were extremely convincing!

I can’t wait to share these great reads with my elementary students at ASIJ!  If you don’t know what to read this summer, it’s never too early to start reading the 2018 Sakura nominees.
