At our school we had a contest and the winner receives visits and free books from the Youth Services librarian at the public library. Division 12 was excited to win the contest and the librarian recently dropped by with a new book for our classroom titled After the Fall – How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again by Dan Santat. I read the book to the class and we enjoyed the story and illustrations. We look forward to more visits from the Youth Services librarian.
The students at Glenayre were fortunate to receive a visit from the author Eric Walters. He has written over 100 children’s books and in our class we have been reading his first novel titled Camp X. In the library, he talked to students about the importance of reading and even took time to sign copies of his books.
The author captures the thrill of when pretend feels so real that it becomes real. With a stick in hand, the options are endless—whether it’s conducting an orchestra, painting a masterpiece, or slaying a dragon—give a child a stick and let imagination take over and the magic begin. Griffin shared this book at our school assembly.
