Summer Reading Photo Challenge!

Mrs. P. caught reading! Imagine that! Mrs. Prendergast, our literate and lovely middle school English and Lit  teacher was recently snapped at the dunes lost in a book. I’ve tried to see what she is reading but I can’t make it out and Mrs. P. is not telling. Maybe it’s a new middle school novel? Anyway, with her feet buried in the hot sand, a comfortable chair and a good book, she is all set for a perfect day. Thanks for sending, Mrs. P.!

Summer Reading Photo Challenge!

Michael is one of my very favorite 7th graders. He knows everything there is to know about U.S. presidents. And I really mean that-he knows it all. As I also love history, we  frequently chat about the presidents and I have really learned a lot from him! He also helps keep the president series of books in the library in order for me. Here is Michael reading in North Dakota, a place I have never been and I am so envious of his fun summer trip. Plus he is reading about my personal favorite president: Teddy Roosevelt. What a perfect summer reading photo!

Congratulations, Nick Lane!

I have said this many, many times to my library classes. Big readers make great writers. Here is the latest published short story by Nick Lane-a St. Eugene alumnus. I can’t take any credit for his talent but I can brag about him! Nick has been published in other prestigious publications but this time I received a copy and a note from Nick. I love talking to him about his work when he visits Wisconsin, and I love his writing and short stories. So proud of Nick!

Tilly is one of the most devoted readers I know. She loves books, reading, trying new genres, and I love  talking to her about what she’s read. She is also a big supporter of the library and donates a book to us through the Birthday Book Club each year. Here she is on vacation in pink from head to toe (literally) and reading one of my all-time favorite books: Sideways Stories From Wayside School by Louis Sacher. Don’t tell her this, but I am going to be reading that out loud to her 3rd grade class this year. Hopefully she will enjoy it again! Can’t wait to see you, Tilly!

Adorable Joshua in 5k looks like he is working hard to get ready for a new school year with his phonics reader. Here he is reading Blaze And The Monster Machines from Nickelodeon. Joshua’s whole family is into reading; his sister, Christina, also loves books and reads often to their younger brother. What a good student Joshua will be for Mrs. Andres in just a few short weeks. Thanks, Joshua! Happy Reading!

Summer Reading Photo Challenge!

Spotted reading on a train into Chicago is everyone’s favorite art teacher, Mrs. Ricker! Here she is reading a thriller (Was it The Girl On The Train…?) while on her way back, with a day of planes, trains and automobiles, from Seattle. Not only an accomplished artist, Mrs. Ricker is a huge reader and we trade books often and talk about them. Maybe she will save this one for me? We love you, Mrs. Ricker! See you at school!
