Join Dr. Peggy Sharp as she shares the best new children’s books, all of which have recently been published. This is a great opportunity to preview new books for possible purchase for your own collection. Dr. Sharp will go beyond just familiarizing you with the best of the newly published titles to share highly practical strategies for using these outstanding books in all areas of your program. Attendees will receive extensive annotated bibliographies in a comprehensive packet full of outstanding ideas you can immediately use with your readers.

Space is limited for this event. This is Dr. Sharp's last year presenting this workshop, so don't miss out on this excellent opportunity for RAILS members!
