Intended Learning Outcomes:
How do we know about these people? Ask if they think any of them had anything to do with libraries. Highlight Aristotle, born in 384 BC who wrote more than 200 books(p.60-61). Cai Lun who invented paper in 105 AD (p.32), and Johann Gutenberg who invented the movable type printing press in 1454 and "put a book in everyone's hands"(p.33).
The majority of these 100+ people had some connection to books and learning.
All of them were important enough to have been put in this particular book, and other individual books have been written about their accomplishments. Ask the students if they would like to be in a book?
Read "We Are in a Book" by Mo Willems.
You could have a couple students read the parts of Gerald and Piggie. Observe how exciting it would be to be in a book!
Have the students think for a minute about their favorite book, then have them turn quietly to the person next to them and recommend it to them.
You could have the students fill out a Book Review form, or just make a list of their favorites to leave in the library for other students to see. You could also create a wall display of favorite books from your students.
