Posting Guidelines & Help

Tips for Comments:

  • Thank you for visiting and participating in this discussion!
  • In order to protect your privacy, we ask that you use just your initials to sign your posts, or choose the “Anonymous” button.
  • And of course, keep all comments appropriate.  Appropriate comments are respectful of others, don’t provide spoiler information, and are on topic.
  • This blog is moderated and your comments will not appear until they have been approved. This means your comment will not appear immediately.
  • Name, Email & URL are not required to post a comment.

Tips for Teachers & Librarians:

  • Have your students show you drafts of their posts before submitting them.
  • Encourage students to speak in their own voice.
  • Comments should express a strong opinion or unique thought.
  • Suggest students use a pseudonym. This will give them some privacy while also identifying multiple comments as their own, helping them develop their voice for an audience.
  • Have students come back and read subsequent comments on books they’ve commented on. Encourage them to engage each other in a dialogue through the comments. Respectful disagreement is welcome.

Do you have suggestions of your own? Please leave them in the comments!

But if you want to comment on a book, please click on its title on the HOME PAGE and comment there, not here!

    The one safe place

    I don’t like how the people in the city treated kids in the city. How did they steal the food when they were not supposed to without getting caught, and not getting killed while doing it.

    If you are someone who is very sensitive to things that look, seem and feel really, really sad to
    you, I suggest that you not read this book. It has a really, really, really sad-so sad that you might cry from it-part about someone dying inside the book.

    22H, I am thinking that you didn’t mean to post this here. If you can comment about where it should be, I will move it for you. Sorry! — Kate Davie
