New Books in the library and more to come!

You asked and we heard you!   Many students have suggested books for the library and we have been able to add many of those requests along with several other great selections.  Here are just a few of the new books we have added to the library this year:   

What’s Your Favorite Animal, by Eric Carle

We love the illustrations that accompany picture books!  In this book, Eric Carle and 13 other well-known children’s book artists share drawings of their favorite animals and tell us why they like the particular animal they chose.   What’s your favorite animal and how would you draw it?

Ghosts, by Raina Telgemeier

This graphic novel was a best seller at our October bookfair and is now available for checkout!

The Secret Life of Lincoln Jones, by Wendelin Van Draanen

This new acquisition for the middle school grades was written by the author of Flipped and Swear to Howdy.   I read the first few chapters and I’m hooked!  Be the first to read this title and write a review.

Coming Soon…

My Lucky Birthday, by Keiko Kasza

In this “sequel” to one of our recent favorites, My Lucky Day, Piglet shows up to help plan Alligator Al’s birthday party – will it be Piglet or Al’s lucky day this time?

Who Is/Who Was Books

We purchased 12 books in this student requested series of biographies.  These books are sure to be popular with readers interested in learning about famous people from different walks of life.

The Land of Stories, by Chris Colfer

With the addition of The Wishing Spell, Amulet Keepers and Beyond the Kingdom, we now have a complete set of this student requested series in our library.    

New Books! New Series! New Fiction!

I have been digging through your suggestions in the bowl, and I’m excited to tell you that we have added over 100 new books to circulation this year!  You wanted new books- and lots of new adventure/ fantasy.  Here are just a few that came in:

Books in the 700’s!

Our Cat in the Hat board is highlighting a special section of the nonfiction side of the library this week- the 700s!  Do you like to make crafts?  Draw?  Play sports?  Then this is your section!  Pop on over to dig through and find a book you wouldn’t usually go hunting for.

Catholic Schools Week!

What a fun week of celebrating Catholic Schools Week with all of you!

I am so blessed to get to work with such an amazing group of talented kids.

To celebrate our faith, I have pulled some of our favorite books about God and made a little display.  I hope you enjoy!

STAR WARS

You guys are totally all about Star Wars these days!  I can’t keep our Star Wars books on the shelves!  So to make it a little easier for you to find our most popular books, I made a little display.  BIG thanks to Alvaro for the incredible Darth Vader mask!  Didn’t he do an amazing job?

A whole lot more than usual.

Did you know about the games we have stashed up high on a shelf?  Next time you’re rained out of recess, come on by!  The Rush Hour game is lots o fun, and you really can’t go wrong with Checkers.

More Seuss!!!

We’ve had so much fun with our Dr. Seuss themed library that you all keep adding to it!  I LOVE it!  Thank you for the little Cat in the Hat, the vinyl quote I have up on my wall, and all of your amazing Seuss themed crafts.  Keep them coming!

And did you know about our suggestion bowl?  I want to make sure you are getting the books that YOU want in our library, so tell me what your wishes are!  As we raise money through our Scholastic sales, I’ll get as many of those books as I can.

Our Library Makeover!

I spent the summer doing some serious overhauling of our library space, and I’m excited to show it to all of you!  I chose a Dr. Seuss theme since we are lucky enough to live in his home town.  It is light and bright, and hopefully reorganized in a way that makes it super easy for you to find exactly what you’re looking for.  Enjoy the rest of your summer, and I’ll see you very soon!
