This past week we celebrated National Children's Book Week. Many Primary School students shared their favorite books and authors through discussion in library classes. Older students and faculty used the interactive window display to share some favorites like the Harry Potter series, Where the Wild Things Are, Olivia, Pat the Bunny, and Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus. I shared my loved of Mo Willems in classes with readings of Leonardo the Terrible Monster, That is NOT a Good Idea!, and Knuffle Bunny Too.
Mrs. Weaver, Mrs. Hagopian, and some really great students and faculty.
