|Aurelia Pennekamp Elementary School Library||
There are a couple of great author events coming up!
Seth Fishman visited Pennekamp a while back to share with us his first book: One Hundred Billion Trillion Stars. His new book--Power Up: Your Incredible, Spectacular, Supercharged Body--is sure to be terrific. Seth is a dynamic speaker who makes nonfiction content fun for children of all ages.
Chris Van Dusen is the author-illustrator of many books for young readers, including The Circus Ship and Hattie & Hudson. He is the illustrator of the Mercy Watson and Deckawoo Drive series. His new picture book with Kate DiCamillo is A Piglet Named Mercy.
Barbara Siegemund-Broka, library media specialist, maintains this blog to inform Pennekamp students and families about library news and related content. Any opinions expressed here are solely her own.
What's Ms. Barbara reading?
When Stars Are Scattered, by Victoria Jamieson
"Along with her contemporaries Ellen Tarry and Ezra Jack Keats, Gyo [Fujikawa] made books that opened the door for today's conversations about diversity. She started with an empty white page and a wish for a bigger, better world and laid out a whole dream--inviting publishers, teachers, readers, future writers, and illustrators to imagine a more inclusive future."
--It Began With a Page: How Gyo Fujikawa Drew the Way, written by Kyo Maclear and illustrated by Julie Morstad
