I’m playing store all week – with real money! It’s spring book fair time, truly one of the happiest weeks of the year! And the day began with two fun book notes….
First, I read that President Obama read Maurice Sendak’s book, Where the Wild Things Are, during the White House Easter Egg Roll – and that he made monster faces. That’s awesome – you have to admire a president who gives a spirited read aloud!
My second book-related smile of the day came when a student gave this to me. As you can see, they kindly got a new copy of the book…
So funny! I wonder if their dog has read the whole series….
The Book Fair has only been open for two hours so its hard to see any trends yet, but I think Oliver Jeffers’ picture book The Day the Crayons Quit will be a big seller. Along with all of the popular Who Was titles.
And here’s a sign I put near Flora and Ulysses: “Read This – and you’ll never look at a squirrel the same way!”
