|Aurelia Pennekamp Elementary School Library||
The library is open this week although most classes are not visiting. The minimum day schedule interferes with the usual class visit schedule, and furthermore, classes will be spending time visiting our fabulous winter book fair. The classes that do visit are hearing books about snow. January and February are such busy months in the library, what with the California Young Reader Medal nominees as well as the schoolwide Literacy Event, there's really no other time to talk about snow--and make sure our California kids know what it is!

The Girl Who Drank the Moon, by Kelly Barnhill
"A story can tell the truth, she knew, but a story can also lie. Stories can bend and twist and obfuscate. Controlling stories is power indeed. And who would benefit most from such a power?"
