MAC BARNETT & JON KLASSEN WERE IN PROVO!

I'm a big fan.

What a treat to meet these two creative, happy, talented and hilarious human beings.  Their new book was released last week and they were at the Provo City Library to promote The Wolf, The Duck and The Mouse.   This is a story about a duck and mouse who get swallowed by a wolf, and then decide to live in his belly.  

I will definitely be reading this one in the library and it's sure to become a favorite.  Fun Fact: Our library gets an autographed copy! 

 Here's a clip of Mac and Jon discussing their new book. Enjoy!



*If you're one of my students and know what Mac Barnett means when he uses the term "Falstaffian" I'll give you a prize!*

See you in the library,

Character Trait: Compassion



This month school-wide we are discussing how to have compassion. This is one of my
favorite books and it's a good reminder about receiving kindness as well as sharing kindness
with someone else.

Come pick it up, check it out and fill somebody's bucket!

See you in the library,

FALL BOOK FAIR


For Supporting the Library and Literacy. 

We just completed another successful book fair.  Not only do book fairs put books in the hands of our fantastic Fox Hollow students and promote reading, but they pay for some great programs at our school. Our book fairs help fund the Battle of the Books program, World Book subscription,  the Reading Hall of Fame  as well as many other needs in the Media Center.

Thank you for those you shared your time volunteering, for encouraging the love of reading, and for attending and supporting the book fair.


See you in the library.

Oh my Goodness it's a good time to be a Reader!



I can't believe our luck! We have fabulous books being made into fabulous movies and series. Two of these titles are actually on our Battle of the Books list.

I've gotta say I'm looking forward to seeing these. 

DISCLAIMER  **Of course, I have to remind you of the sign in the library that says " Don't judge a book by its movie". I only recommend seeing the movie AFTER you appreciate the books.**

Character Trait: Acceptance


September's Character Trait is Acceptance.

I saw a friend of mine this past week with a shirt that says "You can sit with us". What a great idea.  That inspired me to choose this weeks book. . Peanut Butter and Cupcake by Terry Border.

We talked about what it feels like to be excluded, and how we can help include everyone when we're at recess and in the classroom.  I loved our discussions and I loved their insight and observations.

We came up with examples of what to do in certain situations to make room for everyone.  We have some pretty great kiddos here at Fox Hollow. They all pinkie promised me to be on the lookout for people alone at recess and to always let anyone who asks to be allowed in their group.

Happy Reading!

Our New Bulletin Board

If you haven't been upstairs yet, you'll have to take a look at our board outside the library. I enjoyed putting this one together.  How well do you think you will do at picking out our reading faculty!? Be warned...some of them are kind of tricky. . .  Can you pick out our new school nurse? Or our Nutrition Staff? There's a whole lot of awesome people on that board... Come try your luck... and I'll see you soon in the library!
