Do you like pop-up books? Maurice Sendak and Matthew Reinhart worked together to create a hillarious pop-up book titled "MOMMY?" about a little boy that wanders into a house filled with a vampire, a mad scientist, a mummy and more. Robert Sabuda has a fun website with pop-up activities and a sneak peek of this pop-up book. To check it out click on the "pop-up books" link.

We're batty for books, especially books about origami. We only have a hand full of origami books in the media center & they are always flying off the shelves. Want to watch a video about how to make your own origami bat? Click the "Origami bat" link under Online Resources.

Scary books are in demand this month so I read "GO AWAY, BIG GREEN MONSTER!" by Ed Emberley to younger students. It was fun to see how silly the monster looked as we made him go away one piece at a time. We talked about being scared and how looking for the silly part of what is scaring us can help us not to be so afraid.

Alice in Wonderland

While I was at the movies the other day I saw a trailer for Disney's new "Alice in Wonderland" 3D. If you would like to watch the trailer or get a little more info on this movie there is a link under online resources. The movie doesn't come out until March 5th, so there is plenty of time to read the book before you see the movie.

*When searching for this book in our library look for "Alice's adventure's in Wonderland: Through the looking-glass" by Lewis Carroll.
