As Thanksgiving approaches, I will be reading books about the many cultures in the American "melting pot." This week the kindergarten classes will hear Tiny Tortilla, by Arlene Williams; and next week most classes will hear stories of immigration to America. Another good thing about Thanksgiving is the food, so DK will be hearing books about eating!
There are a lot of activities going on in the library these days. The 5th-grade book club had a lot of fun last Friday. The last book, A Tale Dark and Grimm, received a very high rating: 4.475 stars out of 5 among voting club members! The club's new selection is Belly Up, by Stuart Gibbs. The 4th-grade book club meets next Friday, November 18. Scholastic book orders were distributed last week; and new flyers go home this week, with orders due November 17. Through the Scholastic program the libary has acquired many new books. They still need to be cataloged and processed, but they should be on the shelves pretty soon.
