My November Classroom Bookshelf
Here are some of the books I have in rotation for infants and young children this month! This collection is a mixture of books that are seasonally relevant, represent cultural celebrations, and feature Indigenous authors/photographers with a few classroom classics.
I encourage you to purchase books from your local bookstores, especially BIPOC-owned businesses. If you prefer to order things online, I have linked most of the books through Bookshop, which I have found to be a great way to support small businesses without compromising on shipping speed! These Bookshop links are linked through Britt Hawthorne's Bookshop storefront. Britt is an amazing Montessorian who provides Anti-Bias Anti-Racist education and resources to parents, teachers, administrations. She also has some booklists on her storefront that are great for older children!
Here is her website to learn more about her work: https://britthawthorne.com/
