One book, one school

I promise to post more this week! Life is sooooo crazy-busy in October for YA librarians that I have had to step back a bit from posting just to keep my sanity!

The GREAT news....everyone is absolutely loving our book Touching Spirit Bear! I have been so pleased to hear so many wonderful comments from the adults and the students about how much they love this book, and how excited we are to meet Ben Mikaelsen!

I have ordered the sequel and am eagerly awaiting it--the order went in mid-September, so maybe by the end of the month it will be in the library, too!

A GIANT thank you to all the librarians for helping me to make a one book, one school plan! And a giant thank you to all the teachers and students at Mike Moses Middle School for working this program! and last but not least, thank you to my school district for springing for Ben Mikaelsen! I appreciate you all more than you know. :)
