Al Yankovic writes children's books?!

Ok so I'll admit, many of the kiddos didn't know who Weird Al Yankovic was but he is making a career comeback, isn't he? Regardless, he has written a couple fun children's books and second grade enjoyed one of them with me during their library visit. We read, My New Teacher and Me. In this book Billy wonders who his new teacher will be and the first day does not start out very great when his teacher does not believe any of his stories. By the end the two have come to an understanding and readers old and young are inspired by the bravery of one little boy and his ability to see the world just a little bit differently.

Second graders are also working on expectations in the library and how to use the library responsibly and with regard to other people. I am enjoying learning about the kids as readers and watching their interests grow and change each time they visit.

Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to volunteer.
