A Dog's Day & (Family Reading) Night

Today in the library kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd graders met a different dog, Gaston.  This book by Kelly DiPucchio is on the Iowa Goldfinch Award list this year.  Students loved Gaston and his sisters Fi-Fi, Foo-Foo, and Oh-La-La but more importantly, they loved the ending and the way all the puppies finally found the place where they belonged.

Family Reading Night was a lot of fun.  There were over 230 people at school!  Miss Betty from Musser read stories in the library and Clifford the Big Red Dog visited the gym.  Kids made Clifford windsocks and participated in a "Book Walk."  There were tons of prizes, big red cookies, and books that went home with kids.
