    Kennedy-Curry Eagles

     #ownvoices

    Books written about diverse characters by authors of that same diverse group.   Example:  The Poet X is a book by an Hispanic author who writes in her own voice about experiences of lantinx teen girls.

    Sufering and trauma as well as brilliance and success are themes of  the diverse cultures in the group #ownvoices.

    When students see themselves in a book, it gives them a sense of confidence, belonging and importance.

    We love Jason Reynolds!  His books do not stay for long on KC Library shelves. 

    In Look Both Ways, he tells the story of what happens when the school dismissal bell rings.

    This is a funny, touching look at the detours we face on the walk home and in life.

    Have you ever been on a middle school field trip or wished you could go on one?

    You will love this hilarious book!

    The Worst Class Trip Ever (Class Trip Series #1) by Dave Barry

    In this hilarious novel, written in the voice of eighth-grader Wyatt Palmer, Dave Barry takes us on a class trip to Washington, DC. Wyatt, his best friend, Matt, and a few kids from Culver Middle School find themselves in a heap of trouble-not just with their teachers, who have long lost patience with them-but from several mysterious men they first meet on their flight to the nation's capital. In a fast-paced adventure with the monuments as a backdrop, the kids try to stay out of danger and out of the doghouse while trying to save the president from attack-or maybe not.
