Thursday was Nonfiction Picture Book 10 for 10, and there were some wonderful lists shared. I especially liked Carrie’s list of 10 perspective-changing picture books, Catherine’s Lives of the Artists, and Linda’s titles to help middle-schoolers present research in new ways.

Pernille Ripp shares 6 ways to create a culture of celebration in our schools.
