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.
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?
The Purloining of Prince Oleomargarine, by Mark Twain and Philip Stead
"There are so many things we don’t know, that we can’t possibly account for, but that’s kind of how life works. It might not seem that way yet, when you’ve had people telling you what to do and where to be all your life, but the reality is, when you make your own decisions, you never really know where they’ll lead, or what will come next. All you can do is make choices and move forward. And actually, what ends up happening is, the more you learn, the more you realize you still have to learn."
