Happy World Book Day!

Use this song to make books and reading cool for kids. MC Grammar will help get kids excited about books in this exhilarating rap that journies through familiar stories and characters. How many book references can you spot? We’ve provided a list below the video. Use this video after reading one or two of the books and see if your students catch them. After watching, students will be begging to go to the library.
