Several events from last week continue this week: National Bullying Prevention Month, the County of Los Angeles Public Library bookmark contest, and playing Freerice.com to earn food donations to the United Nations World Food Program. Hispanic Heritage Month concludes (9/15 to 10/15), so several grades are hearing books that relate to Hispanic cultures--DK/TK, Ole at the Zoo, by Phillis Gershator; grade 3, First Day in Grapes, by L. King Perez; grades 4 and 5, Cactus Soup, by Eric Kimmel.

Everlasting Nora, by Marie Miranda Cruz
George stirred. "Forgive me, ma'am. I don't think that's true. Surely knowledge of every kind is vital to us in our battle with the Problem."
"Dear George, you are so very young." That husky laugh again. "I can see that such concepts might be difficult for you to grasp."
"No, George is right," Lockwood said. "George is always right. We shouldn't fear uncovering things that are shrouded in darkness. We should shine light on them. Like the lantern in your agency's logo. That's what an agent does, after all."
