This week we met Woolly the Mammoth -
Woolly is highly interested in going to the Library, with reeeaallly good intentions. However....
Woolly just isn't suited for the Library. Best intentions aside!
Woolly is however, a great example of what we do and don't do in the Library with books and Library bodies.... we don't bellow or thump around like a Mammoth would; we care for our books carefully, keeping them in a safe spot at home & returning them each week so we can enjoy checking out a new book.
This was a super fun way to kick off our first day of check out! And we followed up by embarking on a quick Scavenger Hunt of the Library - students had to find every spot we have from Nonfiction & Biographies, to the check out station & the cozy reading nook; they found our magazine shelf, the Spanish shelf, the Kimochis corner and more!
It was the perfect segue into book hunting & I can tell you, they were really ready to hunt down a book to enjoy it at home for the week.
For me personally it really was such a highlight seeing how enthusiastic & passionate our kids are for Library time - they really do just love choosing a book & that's what it's really all about for me: creating a safe, welcoming spot for children to access anything the inspires them to read, read, read.
Welcome to the on-line home of Reed Library! I'm so pleased you came to visit & hope you keep coming back to read my blog on our latest happenings, new books & our exciting digital citizenship program!
