I knew that I could have any gift I could imagine. But the thing I wanted most for Christmas was not inside Santa's giant bag. What I wanted more than anything was one silver bell from Santa's sleigh. When I asked, Santa smiled. Then he gave me a hug and told an elf to cut a bell from a reindeer's harness. The elf tossed it up to Santa. He stood, holding the bell high above him, and called out, "The first gift of Christmas!"

Our library elf, Seuss, is back this morning with another of his favorite Christmas books. It looks like his choice today, The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg, is a student favorite as well. Students always go looking for this one at this time of year. I have teachers come to the library looking for it, too! Great choice, Seuss! I wonder what tomorrow's book will be!

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!
