Join the You Should Read This Book Chat

Read any good books lately? Of course you have! You use BookShark, and it’s full of fantastic fiction, inspiring biographies, and page-turning non-fiction. We want to hear about your kids’ favorite books. So to inspire them to share, we’re holding a 6-week book chat contest.

One student will win each week! It’s a great way to get your kids talking about books, and you’ll love the prize we have in store for the weekly winners.

YOU SHOULD READ THIS! Book Chats for Bookshark Students

Feb. 21, 2021 through April 3, 2021

Here's how to join the book chats. 


Join the You Should Read This Book ChatChoose any book you read (or had read aloud to you) from your BookShark curriculum. Then compose a mini book talk to share on Facebook or Instagram. (See the hints below.)


Share your child's book chat via Instagram or Facebook in one of these forms:

  • video
  • audio + photo
  • text + photo

Be sure to tag @bookshark and use hashtags #youshouldreadthis & #bookshark.


  • Start with, “You should read this!” as you show off the book.
  • Tell the name and author of the book.
  • Share a short 4-sentence (1 paragraph) synopsis of the book.
  • Tell your opinion of the book in one sentence.


Each week for six weeks, one winner will be selected to win a 3-tiered, metal BookShark cart plus the child’s choice of book*. Your child may enter as many times as desired each week, using a different book for each submission.

We can't wait to see your children's online book reports!
