I guess students got the message that books were due back today!

Mrs Day had it all under control by 10 am!

Sarah Uthoff, +Trundlebedtales captivated the 3rd graders today with stories about Laura Ingalls Wilder.


What a surprise!

Flowers, signs, donuts.


More poetry.

Thank you Mrs Pentico and all your helpers!

So cool to have Kenn's feedback on our poetry podcasts!


Saw this image in my Twitter feed and thought it looked familiar.

That's because I created it.

It was part of a Pinterest collection of illustrated quotes from Alan November that I put together in advance of his keynote presentation at the Iowa Association of School Librarian's 2014 conference. 

It is fascinating to see how images (especially those with no obvious origin) float around the internet.
