World Read Aloud Day was March 7, 2012

Today there was no school which I think must have helped everyone adjust to the change in the clocks yesterday. "Spring Ahead" is just what the weather is doing lately too.

Last week we celebrated World Read Aloud day on Wednesday the 7th with some choral reading in library classes and with a special Skype visit with author, Barb Rosenstock. She read to our afterschool groups her new book The Camping Trip that Changed America a story about Teddy Roosevelt meeting John Muir and how their friendship brought about important legislation to protect wild lands in America.

Ms. Rosenstock graciously answered questions from the audience and showed us her favorite books. Special thanks to afterschool leader and library volunteer Carol McDowall for arranging this special visit for our students.
