Escuela del Sol Book Fair 2018

“Read some good, heavy, serious books.” -W.E.B. Du Bois

Escuela del Sol values reading as a crucial tool for life-long learning.  There is enjoyment to be derived from discussion, critical thinking and analyzation of various texts, as well as the opportunity to read a variety of genres and authors.  You should choose three (or more) titles  they will read over the summer.  During the first month of school you will compose an essay focusing on a theme from within one of the novels.  Books must be FINISHED by the start of the school year.  All books can be purchased through our school page via www.bkwrks.com.  Likewise, Albuquerque Public Library will have copies of most titles.  Happy Reading!

Students can purchase books at the Book Fair on May 23.
