Book Trailer

I have a big problem....I read too many library blogs!  But, the good news for kids, is that I get great book ideas from these blogs!  The one series that stood out to me was The Genius Files by Dan Gutman.  I gave the first book to a student in 4-S last week, he brought it back the next day and told me he loved it!  So here's a book trailer I found, maybe this will peak your interest also.

This week I've been reading two different picture books.  The first one is Homer, the Library Cat by Reeve Lindbergh, the kids seemed to really enjoy this book.  The best part was when a student was amazed at my ability to purr!  It's nice to hear that I can still entertain kids :)

The next book I actually checked out from Georgetown Public Library, I know, I have a library full of books and I'm going to the public library, what can I say?  This book was called The Incredible Book-Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers.  I adore this book!  There are so many hidden gems in the illustrations, too funny!

Keep Reading!

Yep, that's right, the library is open!  Thanks to all of the amazing parents that helped me relabel the ENTIRE library, we were able to open on Monday.  I even had one student tell me "I didn't know if you even worked here anymore Mrs. Fellows".  That was a huge bummer to hear :(  I loved having kiddos back in the library, we reviewed our library policies, and kids finally checked out books.  Because of this, I wasn't able to read to all of the classes, fear not, I will do that next week.  I've been saving some extra special books to read to them!  I did read Mr. Wiggles Book by Paula Craig to Pre-K and K, this is a great book about book care.
