Thorndyke Bookface with Rapunzel

 

Hey Kids,

Books are amazing things. I love the stories and the illustrations and the feel of the pages and the sound of a good narrator. But have you ever tried to make yourself a part of a book? The #bookface trend gives you a chance to do just that. 

The goal: to make it look like you and the book are one. Choose a book with a cover or illustration that features a body part. Then, line up your body part with the book body and have someone snap a photo. If the image matches you in size, hold the book close to you; if the image is smaller than you, hold it farther away. To make it more realistic, you could even add costumes.

I took a #bookface photo with a great Rapunzel cover (pictured). But there are many book covers and illustrations that would make a great #bookface. I've listed a few below, but want to see other ones that you come up with!

Bear Hugs, 

Thorndyke

Looking for a great story that's fun to read? These books feature middle school boys dealing with the ups and downs of life. Some tell realistic stories that will make you laugh or cry (or both), while others include fantasy and adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Dealing with a serious crush that makes you say dumb things whenever they're around? Have a friend that sometimes acts more like an enemy? Love sports and hate school? Figuring out how to handle your ability to manipulate the multiverse? Wish you were Spider-man? If you answered yes to any of these questions, we've got a book for you!
