@EMKokie: @PBWorkshop I like ARLENE SARDINE by Chris Raschka (1998?) - adults sometimes react with shock, but kids love it! #kidlitchat

April 25, 2012, 1:57 am

@EMKokie: @pattyjmchats Oh, I agree - especially because some books have narrower audience, or are flawed in some way, despite being great #kidlitchat
April 25, 2012, 1:57 am

@pattyjmchats: @traceymcox YES! And, that's why I think most writers write...to touch a reader's heart. IMHO #kidlitchat

@EMKokie: @GabrielleSaraP Meh, this is where taste comes in. Others would complain there are too many of other kinds of books. #kidlitchat

@PBWorkshop: @pattyjmchats To reach a reader's heart is the destination of the best books. The rest is gravy. #kidlitchat

@EMKokie: @pattyjmchats Yup - and I think we can get overly critical, esp. when talking

awards/reviews - some amazing books are imperfect. #kidlitchat

@PBWorkshop: @pattyjmchats When choice is allowed- harder and harder to do in "scripted" classrooms. Studies show choice=reading growth #kidlitchat
April 25, 2012, 2:03 am

@traceymcox: @EMKokie I think every book out there could be improved to some point. You are never done revising. #kidlitchat

April 25, 2012, 2:07 am

@EMKokie: @GabrielleSaraP See, I disagree. Some of those books are powerful, forceful reads. They are powerful stories, not gratuitous. #kidlitchat
April 25, 2012, 2:07 am

@pattyjmchats: @EMKokie: The flaws make stories interesting. There are so many ways to tell a story...so many directions to go. IMHO. #kidlitchat
April 25, 2012, 2:07 am

@traceymcox: @EMKokie True. But as a writer, the editor in my brain won't hush most of the time. *hahaha* #kidlitchat
April 25, 2012, 2:07 am

@rachelnseigel: @GabrielleSaraP @PBWorkshop @pattyjmchats That's pretty common unfortunately. A lot has to do with funding 4 new books. #kidlitchat
April 25, 2012, 2:08 am

@EMKokie: @GabrielleSaraP I wouldn't say they are all a product of a marketing trend, per se. #kidlitchat

@rachelnseigel: @GabrielleSaraP @PBWorkshop @pattyjmchats Buying new class sets is more expensive than replacing a few copies each years. #kidlitchat

@EMKokie: @traceymcox LOL - I get that. I know a book is great when my writer brain goes quiet with awe, and the reader takes over. #kidlitchat
April 25, 2012, 2:09 am

@GabrielleSaraP: @EMKokie Well, my main concern, I guess is the disparity between "dead girl" cover and titles and "dead boy" covers and titles #kidlitchat
April 25, 2012, 2:10 am

@EMKokie: @GabrielleSaraP I can appreciate that, see the concern, esp over gender disparity/objectification. #kidlitchat

April 25, 2012, 2:12 am

@pattyjmchats: @EMKOKIE: Yes! There are perfect stories. U might not like something or would have done something diff, but they are PERFECT:) #kidlitchat
April 25, 2012, 2:13 am

@PBWorkshop: @rachelnseigel Not a fan of "class sets" anyway. Rarely would should a title be read/discussed by more than 6-8 at a time. 1/2 #kidlitchat
April 25, 2012, 2:13 am

@rachelnseigel: @PBWorkshop I agree with you there! Though I read something recently that ideas about lit circles had shifted again. #kidlitchat
April 25, 2012, 2:14 am

@PBWorkshop: @rachelnseigel Small groups could agree on titles they could get copies for themselves at library, borrow from other rooms 2/2. #kidlitchat
April 25, 2012, 2:14 am

@rachelnseigel: @PBWorkshop Then there is the problem of creating new materials to go with new books. Many teachers don't. #kidlitchat
April 25, 2012, 2:14 am

@rachelnseigel: @PBWorkshop I'm a huge reader, but have never been a fan of assigned texts. Like to choose. Even 4 my reviews! #kidlitchat
