Get Georgia Reading posts "All About Those Books" video by Pepperell Middle to the organization's website

Pepperell Middle School teachers and students got creative to promote their school book fair and the result was just picked up by a state organization for reading.  Get Georgia Reading has posted the music video "All About Those Books" by Pepperell Middle students and teachers to the groups website.  You can view the video on the Get Georgia Reading site at:

Teacher Kim Baker borrowed lyrics she had seen from another school online and brought a book focus to a recent Meghan Trainor hit song.  The video was used by Baker's sixth-grade Middle School 101 class to promote the Pepperell Middle book fair last December.  The class is designed to be an introduction to middle school to help young teens be more successful during the turbulent middle school years.
