This Week in the Library...

Last week, our library updated to a new automation system, which is going to be a great thing for our students, but which, unfortunately, also meant that the library had to be closed for a few days!  (Scary!)

This week, though, the library is back to normal, and I'm looking forward to sharing some creepy books with you to help us get in the Halloween spirit!

3rd Grade will be listening to Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds.  Watch the video below to see the illustrator, Peter Brown, discuss this book:

4th Grade will be listening to a parody of an old classic, Madeline.  This version isn't about twelve little girls, though!  It's about twelve little monsters, so, of course, it's titled Frankenstein!  Watch the book trailer below for a little preview:

5th Grade will be listening to selections from one of my favorite October reads, Beware!, which is actually a collection of scary stories by different authors.  The stories were selected by R.L. Stine, author of the Goosebumps series and master of horror!  Click on the book cover to browse the book!
