I know just the student(s) for this book...

We were on school vacation the week before last.

I had an incredible time.  I went swimming, biking, walking, and paddle-boarding; and, I played tennis and board games.

Oh wait, and I READ....  

Flora and Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo

One for the Murphys by Lynda Mullaly Hunt

Bluffton by Matt Phelan

A Dog Called Homeless by Sarah Lean

Hattie Ever After by Kirby Larson

My Life as a Stunt Boy by Janet Tashjian

I could not wait to get back and put these books in the students' hands. The best part of reading books for my library is thinking of a student or a number of students in whose hand I want to place it. Let the reading journey begin!

  1. Thank you. Thank you so very much for being the kind of invested librarian who actively puts books into the hands and hearts of kids.

    You are a hero. :-)
