Spring Break

New Materials

We have new materials in so check out the new materials page, a really cool book that shows you what makes us sneeze, and John Grisham, Lisa Scottoline, and more!

What we’re reading…

Mrs. Dunn is reading Paint the Wind by Pam Munoz Ryan, I am reading Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper, the first in The Dark is Rising series. Mrs. Wasson is reading The Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs by Betty G. Birney. We also have just purchased The Spiderwick Chronicles which is coming out in the theaters soon, I have read the first in the series and it is good!

     

What we’re reading

I just finished The Misadventures of Maude March or Trouble Rides a Fast Horse by Audrey Couloumbis. What a fun read and thank you to Tina to suggesting this book to me! I also just read Lowji Discovers America by Candace Fleming and it was a funny book that was very enjoyable. Both of these books are on the William Allen White list, I think I am down to Airball, Adam Canfield of the Slash, The Seven Wonders of Sassafrass Springs, The Penderwicks, Shanghai Messenger, and one other title that has left my mind. Remember to come see our Leap Year Feature and look on the new materials page I will be listing some new books and DVD’s.
