I'm excited to announce that Stuart Gibbs will be doing a virtual visit with students through Pages, our local independent bookstore. Gibbs's middle-grade books including the Spy School series and the Funjungle mysteries are very popular with PK's upper-grade students. Purchase a copy of Spy School Revolution, his brand-new book, through Pages (use this link), and you can attend the virtual visit. Below is the information and the PDF.

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
