Today I celebrated National Library Week and School Library Media Month with the two first grade classes at St. Alban Roe School in Wildwood, Missouri. Both of the classes were great listeners and offered many wonderful ideas. They enjoyed KITTY KERPLUNKING and GIFTS FROM GOD, which I shared with them. And afterwards, I was so happy to see them eagerly checking out books. In fact, many of them couldn’t even wait until they had checked out their books but began reading as they waited in line.
Way to go, first graders! And thanks to Mrs. Bobbit, the school librarian, for inviting me for the delightful visit.
Happy reading to all of you!
