Don't Miss These Resources

My mind and body are still recovering from the American Library Association Annual Conference. I love attending conferences and spending time with people who inspire me to be a better teacher-librarian, but it takes me a long time to get back into the swing of things after a conference. In my daily life, I require a lot of alone time to read, reflect, and share information that I hope teachers and librarians will pass on to their students. 50% introvert? 50% extrovert? Perhaps. 

I compiled resources that you may have missed during the conference. Happy reading and exploring! 

"We have been given the sacred task of making hearts large through story. We are working to make hearts that are capable of containing much joy and much sorrow, hearts capacious enough to contain the complexities and mysteries and contradictions of ourselves and of each other." -Kate DiCamillo, from her Newbery Acceptance Speech 

"Locomotive is a book that took a long time to create. Some of you already know this, and some of you know it too well." - Brian Floca, from his Caldecott Acceptance Speech
