Diverse Writing (3:07) In today’s changing book world there are many labels for books. Picture books, chapter books, books separated by genre, and books separated by grade. Racehel has author and early reading specialist, Wiley Blevins on the phone today to discuss books for the earliest readers. Storytime (16:14) Libraries are known for their storytimes and we are too. Each week at around 15 minutes past the hour, tune in to hear book reviews or live readings of picture books or poetry. Today we have a book review of "Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow" by Jessica Day George. STEM Education (20:17) When you ask a child what their favorite subject in school is, often it isn’t math. But STEM subjects, like mathematics, science, engineering are essential for the growth of the child’s literacy. Today Rachel is in the studio with BYU Professor Aaron Hawkins to talk about STEM education. Word Painting (32:23) As the old saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” But rarely is it said that a thousand words paint a picture. We’re on the phone with author and storyteller Philip Stead. Literary Classics (40:50) We are around the Librarians' table with Emily and Taylor, student librarians here at BYU to talk about literary classics.
