Snapshot of the Day


A quick snapshot of some books returned by my students (mostly in 4, 5, and 6 grade) on a random spring morning.  It makes me happy to see that classics, new titles, and a variety of genres live harmoniously side by side, waiting to be checked out again and  enjoyed by young readers.
