The Crossover

We are half way through our newest read aloud- The Crossover! The Crossover is a 2014 children’s book by American author Kwame Alexander and the winner of the 2015 Newbery Medal and Coretta Scott King Award Honor. The book is written entirely in verse. The story follows two African-American twin brothers that share a love for basketball but find themselves drifting apart as they head into their junior high school years. We are loving it so far! Please be sure to ask your children about this at home.
