We Love Hockey!!!!

Canadians love hockey and this week our Grade 3 students had the opportunity to enjoy a book from the Brady, Brady series. In Brady, Brady and the Great Rink, Mary Shaw takes an entertaining look at a true Canadian pastime. Chuck Temple's vivid illustrations remind one of Saturday morning cartoons. Brady reminds the reader to never give up and that hard work pays off. This book holds some neat life lessons for young and old alike.
January Rides the Wind written by Charlotte F. Otten and illustrated by Todd L. W. Doney is a book filled with vivid illustrations and language. The colours and words used in each page reflect the weather that experienced in our area (Burlington, Ontario, Canada) throughout the year. Our Kindergarten friends enjoyed hearing all the different months of the year and how each one is unique. This is a great book for learning about the months of the year and how each one is unique.

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year everyone!

You might be wondering why Captain Underpants is smiling so much. Captain Underpants is smiling for 2 reasons: he's thrilled that it's 2010 and he also had a chance to check in some of the new books that arrived in our Library over the holidays.

Thanks to the wonderful support that everyone showed during the annual Florence Meares Book Fair and some book buying Mr. Cann did in October, hundreds of new books have been arriving in our Library.

Ms. Mills has been cataloguing and preparing books at record speed. Thank you Ms. Mills.

Enjoy the new books everyone and don't forget to say hi to Captain Underpants at the Circulation Desk!
