Tackan Elementary School transformed its library into a French bistro for its fifth grade students for book tasting events. With red-and-white checkered tablecloths and a menu that included three courses of different books to “taste,” the students enjoyed some different genres of books by “sampling” their descriptions. The fifth graders got started on their appetizer, a book that had been preselected for them to taste. After reading either the back cover, inside jacket or just a random page of the book, the students recorded the title, genre and author and decided if it was a book they would like to read. They moved on to the dinner and dessert choices and sampled different books during the respective courses.
