(School) Summer Reading Lists are here. . . and we just know that all you eager readers will soon be storming the Youth Services Desk looking for just the right thing to read. 🙂 We thought we’d give you a hand with the task of asking the staff to help you find the author of your choice by offering you a few pronunciation guides:
For example, Brian Jacques’s last name is pronounced JAKES; Jon Scieszka’s last name rhymes with FRESCA; Avi’s real name isn’t Avi at all!
Like to see more? Here are a few pages devoted to just this very thing:
-Mrs. K (missiz KAY) a/k/a Mrs. Krasniewicz (missiz KRAZ nuh wits)
(unless you want to say it in Polish, in which case it’s missiz krahsh NEV itch)
