Happy summer, Y'all!! Where in the world do I read? A lot of places as a matter of fact! Tonight I'm reading Glory Be by Augusta Scattergood while watching the Texas Rangers play (well, beat) the Oakland A's at The Ballpark in Arlington! It was a great book & an great game. I highly recommend this great piece of children's lit. Check out me getting my "reading on!" (Sonntag students! If you would like to submit a picture like this for our board in the fall, email me a copy of you reading to firstname.lastname@example.org.) Happy reading! :)
A big shout out goes to the newest inductees to the Texas Bluebonnet Award "Reading Hall of Fame!" Here are the students who met the Texas Bluebonnet Award reading challenge this year:
In an effort to motivate the students to meet the Texas Bluebonnet Award reading challenge, 5th Grade teacher Mr. Sinclair offered to let any student who met the challenge transform him into a 'Pretty Princess' during the last Good Morning Sonntag. Thank you Mr. Sinclair for taking one for the library team!
Don't forget you can read the books from the 2012 Texas Bluebonnet Award list as well as complete your Bluebonnet Buzz forms on this blog (see the button at the top of the blog) throughout the summer.
I hope everyone has a super summer! Happy reading! :)

My name is Erin Mattei and I am the librarian at Cynthia Cockrell Elementary in Prosper ISD! I am so excited to bring the joy of reading and life-long learning the the lives of children. Reading is the key to success. It is my passion to get children excited about reading! :)
