I am looking for activities to help build a community of readers/ 
learners at a new K-5 school that will open next fall.  I immediately  
thought of one book-one school activities.  It is a K-5 school,  
probably about 60% free and reduced lunch population with about 30%  
ESL (Hispanic and Marshall Islanders).  One title that I have thought  
about is Max's Words.  I am not sure that it will be out in paperback  
format by August.  Do you have other suggestions for titles?  Also,  
have any of you run such a program for a K-5 school and would be  
willing to share ideas (things that worked and those that did not).   
Also, how do I get the teachers to buy into the idea--especially  
since they will not be hired until April or May and most will not  
have worked with me or each other before?   I will post a hit.
