Today, fifth graders received a challenge: Read 25 books this year, and get invited to a pizza party. If you're looking for some ideas as you create your list of 25 books, check out this year's Dorothy's Books, a curated collection of the best middle-grade literature published recently. The library has many titles that you can borrow; look for the Dorothy's books sticker or ask me for help.
As you read Dorothy's Books, you can tune into VPR for their podcast for kids, Dorothy's List. There, host Amy Noyes talks with students around Vermont as they read Dorothy's Books.
