Looking Back to January, February and March of 2015
by Susan Stephenson, www.thebookchook.com
This month is School Library Month in the USA, so what better month to dig around in The Book Chook archives for articles that might prove useful to librarians, parents and teachers who do their very best to help children love learning and literature? This is a regular feature on The Book Chook, where I look at popular posts from previous months and years. Today my focus will be on posts from January, February and March of 2015. I hope you find something useful here, and if you do, thanks for sharing it with others.
