Chris Barton, pictured here at his signing table at Barnes & Noble, gave a wonderful talk on how important libraries and librarians have been to his writing. I am certain that if my sons were still young, I would know the text of Shark vs. Train by heart. And, one of them might have learned to read on it. Another cool fact about Chris is that he’s working on a PB biography of JR Lynch.

"This week students are studying Chris Barton and Tom Lichtenheld's Shark vs. Train. Upper elementary students are learning about the making of the book. Younger students created idea maps and developed their own Shark vs. Train scenarios."

"So I decided to create a Story Action Pod based on a book that kids could use to make an informed opinion in one sitting: Shark vs Train by Chris Barton and Tom Lichtenheld. ... As always, I set up the book with directions for voting and the ballot (located below for easy download). Then, my coworker created some awesome "I Voted Today" stickers. Suddenly, this idea had a trifecta of Kid Friendly Things: 1) Sharks 2) Trains 3) Stickers"
