The Battle of the Labryinth is a great book. It is the 4th book in the series "Percy Jackson". This book is about a boy called Percy Jackson and his friends Grover and Annabeth, and how they go on a mission into the labryinth trying to find a special string before their enemy Luke does. This book is exciting, thrilling, and a brain twister. I really loved reading this series.

Wemberly Worried

The start of a new school year can be a stressful time of year. New teachers, new classrooms, and new friends can raise our stress levels. In "Wemberly Worried", Kevin Henkes creates a character we can identify and empathize with. Wemberly clutches her stuffed rabbit Petal at the beginning of the story for comfort. Our primary friends enjoyed sharing fond memories of their favourite stuffed animals. In spite of all her worries and fears, Wemberly goes on to thrive in her new surroundings as she makes a new friend.

It has been wonderful this month getting to know our new Kindergarten friends @ FM. "Kindergarten Rocks" by Katie Davis highlights all of the awesome things about Kindergarten. The Library did get a tad noisy as we all chanted "Kindergarten Rocks" at the end of the story.
Laurie Keller's lighthearted book about manners is a hilarious reminder about the importance of etiquette in everyday life. Our Grade 3 and 4 students were left groaning and smiling at "cheesey" joke after cheesey joke. Through humour and vivid illustrations Keller reminds us that manners are still important in our day to day interactions with each other.

It's rare I have to say "Don't Try This at Home!" before I read a book. This hilarious look at sibling rivalry is written like a "How To" guide. For me, this story, reminded me of how important family is and how special they are.
