An Angel for Soloman Singer

Soloman Singer lives a lonely, poor, dull life in a hotel room for men only in New York city. His life is so boring that he wanders the streets at night thinking of his happy childhood in Indiana and his dreams. One night Soloman sees a cafe called Westway Cafe. He is hungry so he goes inside and takes a seat. When his waiter comes he orders tomato soup and a balcony for his room, but he dosen't say the balcony out loud. When his waiter comes back, he gives him his soup and tells him to come back tomorrow, so he does. This time he orders two biscuits, some bacon, a large glass of grapefruit juice, and a fireplace, he doesn't say the fireplace out loud though. When his waiter comes back he gives him his order and tells him to come back again so he does. Many nights Soloman Singer goes to Westway Cafe carrying a dream and an order with him and when he ran out of dreams he just starts all over again. He finally learns his waiters name , Angel. See if his dreams come true by checking this book out at the library!

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...

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…
