Grr-there is something wrong with the code-Here’s the link to the video-


Here’s Suzanne Collins reading aloud from Hunger Games. I love that she has what I would call a “slight southern drawl”. I love getting to hear an author read their own words. Brilliant Scholastic!

I have had so many reasons to get excited about books and authors recently! Just today my friend Robin sent me a link to a Publisher’s Weekly article that announces ‘A First Look’ at Hunger Games 2-Catching Fire! I can hardly wait to get my hands on it! I love the online world. 



I’m excited to share some new things I observed from my friend Carol about Lucy Calkins’  Primary Units of Study.  More later!


Update:  January 24th-Check out the Scholastic Blog about Catching Fire and post what scenario you think will take place!
