OPEN LIBRARY DAY!
Mr. Kooiker and I will be helping with book sign out on Tuesday, July 19. Please come and tell us about your summer and find some good reads for these hot summer days!
I will forever be a lover of the genre, KID’s BOOKs. I cannot go to a book store without spending time in the kids’ section pouring through pictures books and chapter books. I would much rather curl up in bed with a chapter book by Sharon Creech than a newspaper!
To stay up with the news, I use an RSS reader system that feeds the news to my email system. Today, I was delivered an NPR interview with Jeff Kinney, author of the DIARY OF A WIMPY KID series. Just yesterday, I was talking with Ryan (a 5th grader at our school) about this series and what specifically we liked about the writer’s style. So, for you, Ryan…and any other kids that might be interested, check out this interview—and all the questions come from the best readers ever: KIDs!
I would like to remind you that our book fair will be the week of November 2. This event will be held in the Media Center…and I am sure that these books will be available for purchase. They are very popular with our readers ages 10 on up.
