There are so many things to share this week. So here are the top five.
1. See these books? Do you know what kind of books they are? According to a first grader they are ‘secret books’. You can’t tell what’s inside them until you read them. There aren’t many. This first grader is seeking the ole rebound books with no covers to find out what’s in them.
2. The Veteran’s Day Assembly. Simplicity. The veteran in front said, Thank you, I never felt like a hero until today.” He served in Vietnam Nam and is the grandfather of a fifth grade student. We were all in tears. Then there was a receiving line to say thank you.
4. Books for the “Read to Dog” program with Lisa and Chance. Delivered by Altrusa International from a former colleague and retired librarian. In 2010, I was the recipient of the Librarian of the Year Award from Altrusa. They do so much good for literacy in the library. br />
5. The arrival of this book from the publisher. Jeff Kinney just keeps knocking out of the park. Students love, love, love these books.
