Our new favourite book

July 7, 2016

We got the summer reading pack from school and finished the last chapter of our last book tonight. We’re kind of sad about that because the last one we read has become our new favourite book: Dory Fantasmagory. I hope we can read it again next week. (I also love Nanny Piggins which came with the pack too)

Library morning

June 15, 2016

My school library is open on certain days over the summer so Mum and I cycled up there this morning and checked out a few books. I even got my hands on the brand new Piggie and Elephant book that just came in last week. I also selected a 2×2 chapter book and a story about a Panda and donuts which I can read to Rafa.

Book choices

We’re always excited to choose books from the book fair.

First choice: Star Wars (I’ve been eyeing that up all week). Second selection ‘The Three Ninja Pigs’ by Corey Rosen Schwartz.

First choice: Another ‘Princess in Black’. That’s a chapter book. Second choice: ‘Goatilocks and the Three Bears’. We have that one at school and it’s really funny.

Decisions

choosing a favourite book for favourite book day is really hard.

But I went with “If you give a mouse a cookie” because I like cookies too.

Since I belong to the school birthday book club, today I got to choose a book for the school library and show it to everyone on the morning school announcements (which is like being on tv, and so that was actually more fun than choosing the book in the first place because now everybody knows me).

I’m also allowed to be the first person to check it out. It’s a great book. Mum is going to read it to my class when she comes in for parent reader time tomorrow.

Parent reader

Mum was parent reader today for my class. I helped select the books last night - The Wonky Donkey was the biggest hit! Ninja Red Riding Hood, The Paper Bag Princess and Count The Monkeys were good too.

Getting in on the office book fair

I might not be at the office any more but I certainly made sure I got in on Rafa's book fair.

After quite some time the selections were made: 'Ninja Red Riding Hood' (Corey Rosen Schwartz), A 'My Little Pony' story, 'Crankenstein' (Samantha Berger / Dan Santat) and a book about trucks.

Library Night

Mum and I have just got back from library night up at my school.

There was a great presentation by Kathi Appelt, author of True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp. She talked about the process of writing the story and how she became a writer.

Then off to the library for activities and games, like book twister!

Mum and I even managed to snuggle up in a library corner and read a few books from the shelf before heading home.
