Book of the Day by Mrs. Mattei!

If there is anyone out there in the reading community who is making a trip to London, England someday a soon, please feel free to bring a librarian-sized suitcase with some water and crackers in it with them... I will be inside. ;o) 

In the meantime, I will be re-reading A Walk in London by Salvatore Rubbino. It is a story about a mom and daughter who are taking an exciting trip to London. Throughout the book, the author included fun and lesser-known facts about this historical city. If you love to travel, this book is a great read for you! :o)

by Salvatore Rubbino

Readers are invited to come along on a mother-daughter day trip to London as they wend their way past the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, through Trafalgar Square, and on to Covent Garden. Includes a fold-out surprise.

What a great day to be in the Sonntag Library!! Last November, Sonntag students participated in a contest to see which class could earn the most Dojo points for amazing library skills. Mrs. Rogers' first grade class won top prize!! Today, her class came to the library and participated in an exciting makerspace activity!. The students built catapults out of rubber bands and Popsicle sticks.  They compared which objects (eraser tops, bottle caps, and cotton balls) would fly the furthest. The kids had a BLAST!!!

Just really loud.
Perfect for young fans of Rock Band and the Disney pop stars,So You Want to Be a Rock Starwill teach budding musicians all they need to know about becoming a bona fide rock star, and the interactive text will keep their parents rocking--and laughing--too!
