Children's Book Week is NEXT Week

Matthew Winner is The Busy Librarian. Gwyneth Jones is The Daring Librarian.  Debbie Alvarez is The Styling Librarian. Although I don't have a "The____Librarian" title, some days I think I should be called The Fickle Librarian. Why?

*"Boys and girls, International Dot Day is my favorite day of the year." -Mr. Schu 

*"World Read Aloud is the BEST day of the year." -Mr. Schu 

*"I think Picture Book Month is the BEST month of the year." -Mr. Schu

*"Isn't Poem in Your Pocket Day the best day of the school year?" -Mr. Schu 

*"Children's Book Week is my favorite week of the year. I love the Children's Choice Book Awards, too." -Mr. Schu

See, I am The Fickle Librarian! 

Speaking of the Children's Choice Book Awards, voting ends on Thursday. Please encourage your students to vote. :) 

Newbery Honor-winning author Grace Lin designed the 2013 Children's Book Week bookmark

The winners of the 2013 Children's Choice Book Awards will be announced on May 13. This year's presenters are Lisa Yee, Tomie dePaola, Henry Winkler, Lois Lowry, Meg Cabot, Katherine Applegate, Brian Selznick, and Walter Dean Myers. (Oh, how I wish I could attend this fabulous event.)


  1. :) I'm a little fickle as well! Thanks for the mention... Looking forward to Children's Book Week as well!

  2. Oooooh, me, too! How great would that be?

    And I'm thinking, more than "Fickle," you're more "The Indecisive Librarian." You just love them all SO much, you can't make up your mind :D
