We had a special visitor today.
Curious George came to talk to the class about our city's special Family Reading Night on Thursday, November 18th. Parents, you do not want to miss this! Tons of books and other great prizes will be given away. Go to the community library from 5:00 to 8:00. It will be a great time!
Now back to Curious George's visit. This afternoon he came with a library helper. They explained Family Reading Night and then passed out a free book to every child! They all got Junie B. Jones Boo and I Mean It! The teachers also got 8 Junie B. Jones books to add to classroom libraries. What a great surprise! Each child also got to hug or high five George. I took a few pictures, but they were moving so fast, so the quality isn't the best.

The children couldn't wait to get back in the class and write their names in their own book.
And of course they could hardly wait to read through their new books.
What a wonderful "gift"!
We love our new books!
