Parade of Books 2012 a success, thanks to YOU!

Another great Parade of Books!  Not everyone celebrates Halloween, but everyone at Stoncelebrates reading! A special shout out and hugs to all the teachers who got gussied up...a lot of nature themes, with two trees (the palm from Chicka-Chicka-Boom Boom by Bill Martin Junior played by Ms. Bucasas and Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree fetchingly played by Ms. Wynne, Ms. Lugo an adorable Mama Berenstain Bear and new art teacher Ms. Tiesenga stepping up and dressing as water inspired by George Ella Lyon's All the Water in the World (yay, nonfiction!). Thanks so much to the kind eighth graders who kept our little march on track, and certainly to all the parents who went out of their way to help make such amazing costumes and found matching books...hope it was an occasion for some happy reading time.  More photos to come, but click here for a few that will get your cute-o-meter spinning!

Also a perennial hit was our Haunted House/Autumn House Museum, for which we had over 100 participants!  More photos to come! The originality of the work, was, as always, eye-popping.  A special treat this year was that one of the families used their haunted house creation as an inspiration to create their own keepsake digital book.  Read the preview here or download the whole book and be amazed!  Kids can check out the print-out copy in the library!

Thanks again for another booootiful month!
