After today's book talks with Carrie Bowman to 6th grade students, Chris C. and Chris D. from Ms. Moore's class helped me carry book bins to my car. Chris D. mentioned that his favorite genre was adventure books. Here's a great link from the KCLS (King County Library System) site for adventure books.
