Wear your Dr. Seuss hat to school on Tuesday March 2nd (or dress up as your favorite Dr. Seuss character) to remember Dr. Seuss' birthday. We will be having Seussical fun in the library this week sharing Suess stories, discovering Seuss characters and stretching our imaginations like Dr. Seuss himself.

Alien Valentine

"It came from Outer Space", a picture book about an astronaut that crash lands into a school and is considered a monster by the aliens that live there, is the book we are sharing this week. Once the students at the school take the time to discover more about the "monster" they find out how nice he is and are sad when he has to leave. You can make an alien/heart card for valentines day by folding a paper in half and cutting it into the shape of an alien head (pictured to the left, a bulge on the top and pointy on the bottom.) Draw your alien face on the front of the card, then unfold the card and write your valentine message on the inside, which should be a heart shape (pictured on the right.)
