School Library Journal just posted a nice round-up of nonfiction for teen readers that Junior Library Guild has had on their radar, including our own Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World.
If the title or premise sounds familiar to you, it’s likely because Tracy Kidder’s Mountains Beyond Mountains was originally released as an adult book. It was adapted this year for younger readers by Michael French–it underwent “youngification,” as we call it in the biz! If you’re interested in more of these Youngifications, which are, indeed, perfect for integrating Common Core Standards in your classrooms, we have a handy guide for you to look through.
