Read On Wisconsin Titles for March

The Youth Services Section of the Wisconsin Library Association is a sponsor of Read On Wisconsin (ROW), which is a literacy program highlighting top-notch reads for youth of all ages in our state.  

Discussion questions, selected booktrailers, forums and resources for librarians and teachers to use in promoting these titles are available at the Read On Wisconsin website. Consider featuring these titles in storytimes, programs, or displays. Children and teens can even make booktrailers for sharing on the ROW website. Guidelines, technical tips and examples are available here.
