A Beginning-the-School-Year Recommendation: Colby Sharp on YouTube
As many of you likely know, 5th grade teacher (and my Yarn podcast partner) Colby Sharp has been posting book-related videos on his YouTube channel for years now.
But this post isn’t for people who likely know. This is for people who don’t know.
If you are an educator, librarian, or anyone interested in getting good books into the hands of kids, I recommend checking out Colby’s channel. He posts about picture books up through middle grade. He shares great read alouds and brand new books. Award winners and reader favorites. And he does it all from the perspective of someone who works with kids every day.
And he has a lot of videos.
