To Whom it May Concern:
Read On Wisconsin, an online book club for students in Wisconsin, will officially begin its fourth year this September. We would like to inform you that Our Friend Mikayla by Mikayla’s 3rd Grade Class has been selected to be the featured book for the month of November for the Primary age group.
You can learn more about Read On Wisconsin at http://readon.wi.gov. As you will see on the web site, each of the month’s featured books are displayed prominently on the home page. Older students respond to the featured books through an online weblog. Teachers discuss strategies for using the books in their classrooms on the Teacher Resource page. Each month, I travel throughout the state to discuss the books with students. Read On Wisconsin also donates books to students who need them the most.
Each month, I recommend 5 books, one for each of five age groups ranging from preschool to high school. I selected all of the books for this year’s list with the assistance of an advisory committee comprised of teachers, librarians and students from across Wisconsin.
I look forward to featuring Our Friend Mikayla in November! Please let me know if there are ways we can work together. Thank you for your contribution to children’s literature.
