I am in the planning stages of creating a book club for 5th grade students. We will be reading The Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz. This book is the prequel to the Disney Chanel summer hit movie, The Descendants.


Author Spotlight - Oliver Jeffers

Last year the students spent several weeks learning about author/illustrator Oliver Jeffers. He is the illustrator of the 2015 Bluebonnet Award winning book, The Day the Crayons Quit. This book was written by Drew Daywalt. However, Mr. Jeffers has written and illustrated fifteen of his own books. Oliver Jeffers is originally from Northern Ireland and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. The students will all tell you that every character illustrated by Oliver has stick legs. It's just his signature way to illustrate his characters. Stop by the library and check out an Oliver Jeffers book today!!
