I read BIRD IN A BOX a few years ago after @erniec gave me a copy. I've gotten additional copies for both the elementary and middle school and I've been pitching it as a read aloud. This year, I finally persuaded a couple 4th grade teachers to use it as a tie-in to their study of the Civil Rights movement. Today, a group of students came running up to me and said, "Mrs K, thank you for telling our teacher to read this book to us!"
There is now an iPad app for Google Classroom. This is a screen shot of all the classrooms I belong to as my student alter ego, "Junie Jones" and a photo I took with the iPad and uploaded automatically into my Classroom folder. Sweet!
