Library

O c t o b e r
 
Story time continues to be our basic activity with all classes and it is my hope this year to concentrate certain genres with some grade levels:

Pre K, K and Grade 1: A wide variety of stories and picture books
Grade 2: Different "versions" of stories
Grade 3: Aesop's Fables and the Parables of Jesus
Grade 4: New Hampshire Stories
Grade 5: Tall Tales and Poetry
Grade 6: Fairy Tales and Poetry


During October our "Book Buffet" will highlight Halloween, fall foliage and saints (in preparation for All Saints' Day).


On Saturday, October 28, I will be attending the Children's Literature Festival at Keene State College where I will spend the day listening to 5 author/illustrators talk about their work in the creation of wonderful children's books. While there I will also visit a  large gallery  of original art used in children's literature...it was once highlighted on "New Hampshire Chronicle"...a unique and impressive collection of outstanding art. I have been attending this annual event for over 30 years and have shared information learned about authors and illustrators with the students and often used info gleaned for collection development.
