Today the library had two very special guest librarians. Miss Sarah Hankins and Mr. Dylan Hankins. They are both in 6th grade and won the Librarian for the Day at the SP Auction. We have had so much fun today! They wanted to share the books they choose to read to the 1st grade classes. So without further ado, I turn the Falcon’s Fables over to them!
Hi! I am Librarian Sarah Hankins and this Falcon’s Fables is going to be centering on Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein. This book is a wide collection of poems ranging from the funny to the mysterious. The illustrations are interesting as well and help portray the story in the poems. The author, Shel Silverstein, is also the author of The Giving Tree and many other books of prose and poetry. My favorite poem is called The Loser. The Loser is about a boy who looses his head and talks about how he can find it. He runs into a problem. He can’t look for his head, because his eyes are on it. He can’t call to it because, his mouth is on it. But he couldn’t hear it anyway, because his ears are on it. He decides to rest on a rock. The illustration shows that the boy was sitting on his head which was what he thought was a rock! If you like fun stories, this will be a wonderful book for you and you’ll want to read every poem in the book in one day. Read it!!! Read it Now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
