As I’ve said before, I really love my day job as an elementary school librarian. We started back school on Thursday. Yes, I’m fully aware that’s still in July. We are on “year-round” school, which I’m pretty excited about. Two week break in October!
This year I want to share more about my job,, including weekly posts featuring authors, illustrators, or books that I have read to kids in the library that week. Since I’ve been at this school for a couple years now and know most the kids, the first few days were a lot of fun.
This week I’m reading Library Lion to all the first grade classes. I love love love this book. Wonderful illustrations by Kevin Hawkes and a charming story from Michelle Knudsen. I like to read it at the beginning of the year because it’s about breaking rules in the library…and how that can be a good thing sometimes?!? Some people may think that’s a little nuts to read it to kids on the first few days of school, but whatever, it works for me.
Can’t wait to share more fun things from the library. Happy reading!
