Phillippa Fisher's Fairy Godsister

Phillippa Fisher thinks she has the worst life ever. Her best friend Charlotte is moving away to a place where they are going to get rid of cell phones, computers...any technology! Also her parents are really embarrassing, like the day when her dad came to school in his pajamas! So a fairy godsister is all she could want. But when she gets nervous and accidently throws her out of the tree house window all Daisy, the fairy godsister wants to do is get her wishes made and finally get away from Phillippa.... but when Trisha, the popular girl steals her last wish voucher, they have to think of a good plan. Will Daisy get it back before her life cycle runs out?

This book is not available in our school library...try the public library or a bookstore!

We Are Off And Running

We are entering our 2nd full week of school and I have seen each class two times. So far we have reviewed our Missouri Reading Award Programs, checked out for the first time, learned how to access digital materials at home, set up Google Classrooms, and become familiar with Overdrive ebooks.  Mrs. Haynes met with each class before their second checkout (first with their classroom teacher) and chatted with the kiddos about checkout expectations and a couple of other new things she is working on.  She is so good about being proactive instead of reactive to what we know happens each year in our library.

This is our plan...

The Power of A Book

I recently finished the book, Appleblossom The Possum by Holly Goldberg Sloan (the author of Counting by 7's)  Let me start by saying I will read anything that H. G. Sloan writes.  What an amazing author!  Appleblossom is the sweetest little possum you ever did read about and she totally changed my feelings about possums.  They just don't seem quite so nasty anymore:).  Just look at that cute little possum waving to you on the cover below.  She was drawn by Holly Goldberg Sloan's husband, Gary A. Rosen.

I started reading this book on Monday and found myself headed back to school tonight (Wednesday) after dinner so I could find out what happened to sweet little Appleblossom in the "monster's house."  I have always thought that I didn't enjoy fictional animal books.  I may be the only person in the world who doesn't like Charlotte's Web.  I am beginning to wonder if it is because of the sadness I felt as a little girl when I read about Charlotte…
