#cbadSpotlight March - May 2021

 Last year, for the 5 year anniversary of #ClassroomBookADay, the concept evolved a bit to include curated monthly recommendations to support deeper book knowledge, support of BIPoC book creators, and common books for educators to discuss. If you missed the first round this year, and to learn a bit more, visit the original post here.

*In order to be able to be responsive and sensitive to the times we are in, this year I released titles three months at a time.* I hope you find titles you are excited about, some new to you, and ones that will support your efforts with your students this fall!
