What's Coming Up?
by Anne Bryan, Monett Elementary School Library
 
Well, things are never slow at the MES library.  We are always busy learning something new or reading the books nominated for the various state reading awards.  Kindgarten students had the books nominated for the Missouri Building Block Picture Book Award read to them.  They voted for their favorite in December.  The MES favorite was Mustache Baby by Bridget Heos and Joy Ang.  Once we find out which book won for the state, we'll have a celebration for the book.

First and Second grade are preparing to vote for their favorite book nominated for the Missouri Show-Me Award.  Second grade has 1-2 more books to read and first grade has 4-5 books.  Voting will take place either at the end of February or beginning of March.  This is a great opportunity for students to hear great authors and see talented illustrators.  Voting is never easy because all the books are so great.  A list of the nominated books is below if you want to check them out from the public library.  

The winning book for the Missouri Show-Me Award won't be announced until April--so we'll have our celebration for that winning book then.

Thank You Kiwanis Club!
Our local Kiwanis Club made a generous donation to the MES RIF (Reading is Fundamental) fund. Thanks to their generosity and that of several other anonymous donors, we have enough money in our RIF account to have three book distributions this year. That means that each MES student will receive three books to add to their personal library. Personal libraries help children develop reading skills and a love of reading.
Thank you so much to the Kiwanis Club and to our secret friends out there! We love the books!
To see the smiles on the students' faces, check out our video:
