Great Books

One of the coolest things about working in a school library is that I have kids coming in to check out books all day.  When they come in to the library, I get a chance to read to them.  The book I am reading to the younger one this week is:

Me . . . Jane by Patrick McDonnell (Apr 5, 2011)

The book is about Dr. Jane Goodall as a young child and some of the things she did when she was young, with her stuffed chimpanzee, Jubilee.

This is a very cute book and the kids are really enjoying it.

For the older kids, we have been reading:

                                                  Wonder by R. J. Palacio (Feb 14, 2012)

This is a great book! I read this book during my summer vacation and I thought that it would be great for the kids at the school. This is a story about a boy who is born with facial deformities and has been home schooled all of his young life, until now.  It's a very touching story about what he goes through everyday and what it is like for him, going to a school with other kids as he enters the 5th grade. 

The kids are really enjoying this one too. Sometimes when I stop reading and tell them that we will continue next week, I have heard a few "Ah's."
