Blogging and Books

February 1, 2007 at 9:51 am Leave a comment

 Today I was at a Peggy Sharp seminar listening to her book talk her favorite books for children from the last year.  As I expected, I left with a lot of good ideas for readers advisory.  Peggy geared much of her program towards school librarians.  One of her ideas which caught my attention was to have kids imagine themselves as the character in a book they are reading and then blog in character about what is happening to them in the book.  I thought that was such a creative idea that could connect kids with books in a way that is relevant to them.  I suppose that students could take that one step further and comment on each other’s character blogs while still staying in character.  For example, what would Hester Prin have to say to one of the characters from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants?  Could be interesting.
