|My "Grinch" book character tree|
My story time this season is The Mitten and The Hat by Jan Brett. Even though our Library looks very Christmas festive, I like to use non-specific holiday books for my story time. The students are decorating white mittens (like the ones in the Mitten) and I am using them to decorate the library!

I am also (as Mr. Schu says) "paying it forward" and having a book give away. I am calling it The Twelve Days of Books and I am giving 4 books away everyday. To enter, the students must leave me an entry form in the boxes I have in the media center - and they must include the name of a book they recently read and a short review of it. I am planning on reading many of these reviews on our morning announcement show.
And finally, this year I attempted to do something I saw last year on Twitter and Pintrest - a book tree. I am pretty proud of how ours turned out - now I am hoping that it STAYS this way until Winter Break! I think my next task is a book menorah for the library!
