Great Stone Face Books

Great Stone Face (http://www.dover.lib.nh.us/childrens%27room/childrenpages/gsf.htm) books are 25 books chosen annually for students in grades 4-6 that librarians and teachers ‘booktalk’ to encourage the kids to read.. In April, all the kids vote on their favorite and the Great Stone Face Book of the year is chosen.
The first one I will be presenting is Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke.
Since this book is a graphic novel, kids seem drawn to it naturally as many enjoy the comic-book format. I will read a review I found online and then show them this site: http://zitaspacegirl.com/webcomics-2/
Since it’s aimed for girls, I don’t know if it will be a big winner this year, but what do I know…Nate the Great won last year and it was clearly a boys’ comic!
