Tomorrow the school bell will ring and the kiddos will flood the building again. Tears will flow. The first day of school is difficult for both parents and children. Tomorrow will be my youngest grandson's first day of preschool. He has been ready for two years-a born student! I predict the tears will be his mother's. She is a terrific mom. I only wish I could be his school librarian. I feel great knowing he is in the capable hands of a good librarian friend of mine.
We practiced school this week by reading these perfect first week of school books. I will be sharing these with my preschoolers this week too.
Mr. Bones is our library watch dog. He likes to help me out with library lessons and he enjoys sitting with Kinder and Pre-K students who are chosen by teachers as "librarian of the week'' He is WILD about books.
These are some books I will be reading to older students as part of library orientation.
Once again, our school will be setting up book boxes outside of the classrooms for students to read while waiting for their teachers to open up classrooms. This has been a very successful idea mostly for the younger students. All you need is a box and some fun and interesting books and kids are hooked.
