In a little less than a week, the library will be filled with Southwest students checking out their first books of the school year! I'm so excited to welcome you all into my library! I hope you are excited, too. Hmmm, which book will you choose?
Mo Willems is one of our favorite authors here at Southwest. His characters are some of our favorites as well. Who doesn't sympathize with Pigeon when he doesn't get to drive the bus? Everyone loves shouting "banana" along with Elephant and Piggie in their book We Are in a Book. And we have all been in Trixie's shoes when we discover our favorite toy, like Knuffle Bunny, goes missing. Well, Mo Willems is back with his new book Nanette's Baguette. Who is Nanette? And what's a baguette? You can find the answer to those questions by checking out Nanette's Baguette by Mo Willems from our library. Until then, here is a behind-the-scenes time-lapse video of Mo as he created his new book.
About me . . .
Formerly a classroom teacher. Currently a School Library Media Coordinator. I loved being in the classroom, but now that I am in the library I can't imagine doing anything else! The library is my favorite place to be. From my rocking chair to my ABC rug to the smiling student faces checking out books, the library just can't be beat!
Learning in the Library
I have a fixed schedule in my library which means I get to see all the students in my library classes each week. This blog highlights some of the things we are learning and some of the great things going on in our library!
