|A new shipment of library books came into the library this week! I felt as giddy as a kid on Christmas as I unpacked the two giant boxes of gorgeous books and placed them on the shelves for the students to enjoy. Of course the first thing I said to the 4th graders that came just as I was finishing up was “We just received over 70 new books!” They were ecstatic and anxious to see what they were. Within the hour, 5 brand new books went home with delighted kids eager to explore their pages.
A few days before the new books arrived a 1st grader asked me, “Do you have any cool books?” Well, I certainly think all the books in the library are cool, but apparently he does not necessarily agree. However, with just a little digging I was able to get to the source of what “cool” was and he ended up happily taking home a leveled reader on Prince Caspian from the Narnia Chronicles. As I unpacked the boxes of new books I could not help wondering which ones my little 1st grade friend would classify as “cool.” I’m guessing the books on Ninjas and Military Fighter Planes make the list. What do you think?
Here is a just a sampling of the new books ready to be checked out. The publisher’s descriptions are underneath to give a little taste of what each book is about:
