Wildwood Elementary Book Review Podcasts


These podcasts are short reviews about books students have read, teachers are reading with their classes, or teachers have read.

Many of the student book reviews are a part of 2008's Read Across America celebration. We'd like to thank these students for taking the extra time to share their favorite books!
