This month you'll find me sharing a thematic book list somewhere besides this blog. Check out the January issue of Book Links for my article entitled Classrooms Like Ours: Books about Schools around the World. You'll find picture books, informational titles, and a few broader cultural overviews that include information about schools.
I had a lot of fun reading and reviewing books for this list. I don't mind telling you that after reading about many different kinds of schools around the world, I was particularly grateful for my public education, and even more grateful for all the teachers out there working so hard on behalf of children and young adults today.
