Unwrap a Mystery Book


“Unwrap a Mystery Book” is an elementary version of Blind Date with a Book. This set-up kit includes everything you need to let your students do the bulk of the work (wrapping the books), saving you time and energy.
This kit contains all the same pieces as Blind Date with a Book except I replaced the phrase “Blind Date with a Book” with “Unwrap a Mystery Book” in all pieces of the kit. I also simplified language on the “Hint” cards. If you are an elementary librarian, teach ESL students, or are just looking for something a tad cleaner, you will probably prefer this kit. This version will work just fine with middle and high school students as well.
