I am starting my Practicum this semester at the Fort Worth Public Library! This is very exciting because I will be working in the Children's Center and doing research projects on books. Including...
A Super Bowl Bibliography: a bibliography developed of the 20-30 best books for youth (grades K-12) on a mixture of the following topics: leadership, sportsmanship, football (including but not limited to biographies), women athletes, and values. There should be both English and Spanish titles included. Provide brief summaries and/or reviews as well as any recommended reading lists they might appear on. They do not have to be books currently owned by FWL. We are working on a project related to the Super Bowl activities and want to distribute a bibliography as a part of that.
How awesome is this! I am so looking forward to finding these books! So far I would suggest...
