This year I got to go to the American Association of School Librarians conference in Columbus, Ohio! It was an incredible time. I saw countless authors and learned about some incredible books to bring back to the E. Rivers Media Center!
Loren Long's book "Little Tree" is an incredible story about a little tree that will not let go of his leaves so he stops growing. There is an incredible lesson to be learned from this little tree.
Kevin Henkes has a new book out called "Waiting". I was star struck seeing him because I have been reading his books for over 20 years to children and several of his books are favorites!
Sean Qualls is an incredible illustrator of "A Case for Loving" and "Emmanual's Dream". He is the kindest person and his books are amazing! Both of his books are now in our media center!
I also go to see and hear from many other authors that I have since bought their books and brought them to E. Rivers!
