Today I got to meet one of our new transfer students during lunch. I spent some time learning about what kind of books he likes to read and gave him a tour of the upper school library.
" I don't know what book to read first!" S.B. Age 11
After filling his arms with some titles from a popular fiction book series -- a classmate noticed and mentioned we had another "great" series that he personally enjoyed. At this, my new library patron walked over to his new friend, saw the books, read the back cover and immediately switched out some of his selections. At checkout I caught him looking at each of the four books he was borrowing and overheard him excitedly exclaim " I don't know what book to read first!" -- This sounded like beautiful music to my library teacher's ears!
