There have been several releases of movies based upon books lately. One of these is Beastly by Alex Flinn. This is a modern retelling of the classic fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast. Don't forget that there is always more to the story in a book than can be crammed into 90 minute movie, so come by and check it out for the rest of the story.

If you liked Beastly, you might enjoy Ms. Flinn's other books. Visit her website to see the full list.

December 2010

We only have two more weeks before we are out for the Christmas holidays!That doesn't give us much time to prepare. I'm going to change out the books on the Shelfari shelf so that we can discuss Christmas stories. Please comment and let me know what your favorite story is.

The Scholastic Book Fair was a great success and we appreciate everyone's help to make it that way! We received over $1300 in book credits, some of which we took off the carts. Some we will use to order from the Scholastic Resource Catalog. So, there are new books in the library! We also pulled some paperback books to use as incentives at the end of the school year again. Last year we ran a little low, but now we are fully stocked.

Here is the trailer to one of our new books, The Maze Runner:

October is one of my favorite months, because I love to read slightly scary stories to students! Some of my favorite stories are "The Ghost-eye Tree" by Bill Martin, Jr., "The Witch's Broom" by Chris Van Allsburg, and "The Graveyard Book" by Neil Gaiman. The last one has a wonderfully creepy book trailer!

MEISD Library

Well, my plan was to post weekly, but as you can tell that has not happened. Ms. Toni and I are working on cleaning up the shelves in the library. We are cleaning books that have gotten grubby over the years and repairing books and labels. Ms. Toni is also busy labeling books for AR.

School has gotten off to a really great start this year and we have already placed an order for new books. Hopefully, they will be in, processed, and on the shelves before Thanksgiving.

Save up your money for the Scholastic Book Fair in the library November 1st through November 5th!

See you soon and keep reading!

Well, I read "Twilight" by Stephanie Meyer earlier this year. The tension between the two main characters and the writing was well-developed. However, I was rather disturbed by Bella's callousness when she joked about locking the doors at the Prom so that her classmates, her friends, could be slaughtered.
