Hope you’ve had a hopping Easter Break, and that you enjoyed the sunshine! Before we jump into this week’s blog post, I’d like to take a moment for two reflective questions: What can books mean to you? And… What is the importance of a story? I found a possible answer in a poem I read last week, and also in a book called Mac B. Kid Spy Top Secret Smackdown (I’m eternally thankful to Anush in 4D for recommending this amazing series to me!). Before you read on, think about what your answers would be to those questions…
General Library News
This week, we will prepare ourselves for meeting our Reading Festival author/illustrators, Hanna Olausson, Elise Gravel and Victoria Jamieson. We will discuss our questions we want to ask them. We will also clarify anything left lingering unclear regarding the Reading Festival next week!
Please note that the library will be closed for book returning & borrowing after school next week on Tuesday (26/4) and Friday (29/4) due to the Read-a-Thon and Book Sale at these times. Students are welcome to browse and borrow as usual on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday during week 17. Thank you for your understanding!
PYP Library Times
Next week, students are invited to share a book from home that they love. So this week, please talk with your child(ren) about which book from home they’d like to bring to school to show us during library lesson. It doesn’t have to be a book that you own, you can borrow it from the public library (or a friend!) too. Students will share what it is that they appreciate about this book or story!
