I just read Cynthia Lord's newest book, A Handful of Stars. We don't have it in our library yet, but I will order it as soon as we get back to school! A Handful of Stars is about Salma, whose family travels to Maine each summer to work harvesting the blueberries that are such an important crop in that area. She meets and becomes friends with Lily, a local girl who has a serious problem. Her beloved dog is blind, and he needs an expensive surgery to have a chance to see again. How will Salma and Lily help him? And will it cost Lily the friendship of her other best friend?

I have gotten even more pictures of summer Bobcat readers this week! Looks like we have a lot of families that are enjoying some summer reading--is that Diary of a Wimpy Kid I see him reading? Can you tell what these boys are reading? It looks like they're enjoying it! I wish I knew...
It looks like we have lots of student readers this summer, but I'm beginning to get worried.....where are our grown-up readers? Teachers and staff, who's read a good book this summer?
Wild Wednesday Readers met for the first time at Villages at Louetta last week! Six Bobcats met in the laundry area to enjoy some books with Mrs. Carey, Mrs. Botello and Mrs. Day. Thanks for the cool rug, Kayla!
We hope that even more of you will join us next week! It was a fun way to spend a rainy Wednesday morning. We can’t wait to do it again!
If you live in the Villages at Louetta and you need a new book to read, you're in luck! Just go by the computer center in your apartment's main office, and choose a good book to take with you! Bring it back when you're finished, and read another one! Read. Return. Repeat! :)
If you live in the Villages at Louetta, mark your calendars, because you can be a Wild Reader too! Join us from 10:00-11:00 every Wednesday this summer, and we will go on some reading adventures together! You'll have a chance to complete some AwesomeReading Challenges along the way!
Don’t you wonder which teachers will be there next Wednesday….?
I have so many pictures of Bobcat readers from around our neighborhood, that I'm pretty sure Benfer kids are enjoying lots of adventures during these rainy days of June! I'll be making quite a few posts in the next few days, and I hope that even more of you remember to send me your reading selfies! Who will be next.....?
I KNEW that our Benfer Bobcats were going to have fun reading this summer! Here's one of our 5th grade Bobcats enjoying a good book. He and his family are super book lovers, and it looks like he's using his free time losing himself in an adventure! Way to go!
Who will be our next Bobcat reader, I wonder........
I was so excited when I opened my email today and found our first Summer Reading Selfie!
A fourth-grader, Asna is a true Wild Reader! She is already working on her AwesomeSummerReading Challenges.I'll bet she's already enjoyed some good books...and this is just the 2nd official day of summer! WOW!
I'm wondering who will send me the next reading selfie...I can't wait to see!
If you would like to send me a picture to post, ask your parents to email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I am interested to see you enjoying a great book this summer! Be creative! Have fun! And keep reading!
