Hello Everyone...and Goodbye for the summer. We just realized that we have not posted for a month! Amazing things are happening in our Library and we can't wait to unveil them for September. Our layout is changing thanks to the support from our community through our pizza lunch fundraisers. Our Library is getting a special delivery today; a new book shelf!
This however does not mean that we have not been reading great books! We focused on Perseverance in the Library (no coincidence this is discussed in June!). We highlighted the importance of working our best, not allowing ourselves to get distracted, and finishing the race. Our Book List for June was (excerpts from chapters.indigo.ca for summaries):
The Very Busy Spider - Eric Carle
How to Catch a Star - Oliver Jeffers
There once was a boy who loved stars so much that he wished he had one of his very own. Every night he watched the stars in the sky from his bedroom window and dreamed of how he could be their friend and how they could play hide-and-go-seek together. So, one day, he decided to set about catching a star for himself .
Horton Hatches an Egg - Dr. Seuss
Meet Horton the elephant, one of the most commendable heroes in children's books.
"I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. . . .
An elephant's faithful, one hundred per cent!"
Horton is kind and trustworthy, but unfortunately, the lazy bird Mayzie takes advantage of his good nature when she leaves Horton to watch her unhatched egg. Told with Dr. Seuss's signature rhymes and trademark illustrations, this is a tale that will be enjoyed over and over, by reader and listener alike. And don't miss another delightful tale about this beloved pachyderm: Horton Hears a Who!
Have a fabulous summer, and enjoy the break!
