The Secret Of Rover

Here’s another outstanding book trailer, this one made by Johnny in the sixth grade: The Secret of Rover by Rachel Wildavsky. Did you like the movie, Spy Kids? Then you’ll love this book. These book trailers really help to stir up interest from the students. They get excited to read the book! Great job, Johnny!

BIRTHDAY BOOK CLUB

Here is Rose, the latest member of our 2015 Birthday Book Club! Rose kindly donated The Map To Everywhere by Carrie Ryan and John Parke Davis. This swashbuckling adventure is the first installment of a great new series where “adventure, magic and hilarity collide.” Master thief, Fin, schoolgirl Marrill and a bumbling wizard scour the world to gather together the pieces of the Map To Everywhere, with a sinister enemy hot on their trail. A truly heart-pounding adventure! Thank you, Rose!

Constable and Toop

The sixth grade recently made “book trailers” from books found in our library. They did a fabulous job! I hope to eventually get most of them here on the blog. These trailers are being shown on the Smart Board in the library for all students to enjoy. Already they have generated several check-outs by students who became interested after watching the trailers. Here is one: Constable and Toop by Gareth P. Jones. Created by Carlos.
