About This Book
I have always loved libraries and was thrilled to have a career in librarianship. Little wonder that this book appealed to me so strongly. It is illustrated with brightly colored acrylics in a folk-art influenced style which lends an authenticity. It tells of an amazing woman who dedicated her entire ife to making libraries pleasant places to be for children. The work is a beautifully written and beautifully illustrated book about an important little piece of history.that is not well-known.

About This Product
These activities can be used for individual, small group, for whole class. They could also be used as homework, with guided groups, or with book groups. Small groups could be working on different activities at the same time. The book can be read aloud and selected activities done in class. They could be useful laminated and in a literacy center. It is always a better learning experience if books are discussed in pairs or in groups, in my opinion. Pairs or groups of students can also complete more complex activities.
Students can travel around the classroom to 3 or 4 stations answering questions about the book. The questions can be glued to butcher paper. Each station should have enough squares for all of the class to record their answer. The questions or activities can be posted on the paper or on the wall. Students must support their answers with proof from the book.
