I am wondering if others have compared coworkers to characters from picture books. I have two picture books on my desk this week because the characters remind me of coworkers. In fairness, I have a picture book on my desk also because it reminds me of me.
I love the book, “An Amazing Snowman” The snowman has the characteristics that I find important in life. The best one is from the end of the book, “he knows that every ending…is a chance for a new beginning and a chance for a nice warm hug!” I wouldn’t normally recommend books from a movie tie in, but this one is Awesome.
OCLC does have a z39.50 interface for library catalogs. Tomorrow I should have my log in and password for that. This should make cataloging much easier for all of the library staff in Bering Strait School District.
I have found a fun way to write questions for Battle of the Books. This week my husband and I are reading “Fahrenheit 451″. After I read, I write the questions for that part of the book. I read the questions to him and he adds or edits some of the questions. It has been a fun way to spend an evening that pulls us away from the television and a great book to use for this activity.
