I've been thinking a lot about what I will do when I have a library of my own. One of the main functions of a librarian is communication. I've been thinking how I could best do that.
This was a project for INFO 5420 Youth Literature. I had to read some award winning books for this class. (oh tragedy. LOL!) One of my students recommended this one to me. I'm glad I listened to her. Thanks Kate K!
Sky Hawkins is a teenage girl whose mom has just disappeared, her long-time boyfriend just broke up with her in a very public manner, and her family has been disgraced. Sky, her three brothers, and her father are still in shock from these events. They are trying to move on and accept their new life minus their mom, position in the were-dragons society, and half their fortune is gone. Nothing is the same as it was before. She is desperate to literally and figuratively put her family back together. Since money, specifically, gold is so very important to were-dragons, Sky plans her first heist
So this week a co-worker of mine asked me if a librarian REALLY needs more than a 45 minute planning period like most teachers get.
This is an assignment I did for INFO 5405 Collection Development.
We had to evaluate two journals.
My plan for my library is to have a Hunt for the Seventh themed orientation (Morton-Shaw). This book is a delightful ghost story with a bit of mystery and suspense--a trifecta!
Here are the Picture Book annotations:
For my INFO 5420 Literature for Youth Class, we have to read approximately 2 books per week. I have an excuse to read as homework!!
