Many well-known authors were born in the month of June. As an interesting end of the year activity, teachers may want to read and discuss their books in the classroom. In doing so, students may be inclined to checkout other books by the author over the summer. Additionally, creating a classroom activity based on an author, or book, is a great way to reinforce teamwork and creativity.
To view a list of the authors born in June, visit the Scholastic web page June Author & Illustrator Birthdays.
Remember to visit your local BCLS branch to locate books by these authors.
