Today I'm celebrating four amazing middle grade books about friendship! Kirby Larson, Augusta Scattergood, Susan Hill Long, and Barbara O'Connor didn't just write four wonderful books, they're working together to celebrate friendship, writing, and reading.
Here are their #TrueFriends books!
AUDACITY JONES TO THE RESCUE by Kirby Larson
from Scholastic in January 2016
MAKING FRIENDS WITH BILLY WONG by Augusta Scattergood
from Scholastic in August 2016
WISH by Barbara O'Connor
from Farrar, Straus and Giroux in August 2016
THE MAGIC MIRROR by Susan Hill Long
from Knopf in May 2016
To spread the message about #TrueFriends, each author created a video that talks about friendship in her book and includes a writing prompt about friendship. You can watch all the videos on the #TrueFriends YouTube Channel! And you can also find more resources in the #TrueFriends kit and even a sweet "Friend Catcher" template kids can make.
And if that wasn't awesome enough...there's more!
Fifteen lucky librarians and teachers will receive a set of the four #TrueFriends books: AUDACITY JONES TO THE RESCUE, THE MAGIC MIRROR, MAKING FRIENDS WITH BILLY WONG, and WISH and four super lucky grand prize winners will receive the books and an opportunity to host one of the four authors for a Skype visit with their class, library, or school.
Head on over to enter the giveaway! You have until November 30th to enter!
