The countdown is on for our visit with Kazu Kibuishi this Thursday, October 11th!

Kazu Kibuishi will be doing an hour presentation and signing books for our students. Children will get books delivered to their homerooms by Thursday afternoon. If your family would like the chance to listen to him speak you are invited to the RI Festival of Children's Books and Authors at Lincoln School in Providence, RI on Saturday from 9:00 to 5:30pm. Here is a link to the schedule

Susan Hood will be at the book festival as well (see schedule link above). She has a new historical fiction book in verse that is keeping me on the edge of my seat! I seriously wanted to stay home and read it this week. Now I need to meet Susan on Saturday!

by Kay Haring

Here's a fantasy series that is sure to capture the hearts of many of our readers! In fact, this book trailer was created by a student who is now in the sixth grade. She wanted to share her love of this series with her peers. And good news: there are five to keep our readers immersed for a while!

by Shannon Messenger

I like books that lead to deep discussion. I think this one would be perfect to read with older students. I look forward to the chance to discuss it with kiddos when the book arrives.
