5th Grade Class Visit, 9/16

I forgot to post about it, but on Friday, I had my first visit from the 5th grade class at the Catholic school next door to the library. They're studying American geography, which inspired me to think about American history, and resulted in me sharing John, Paul, George, and Ben by Lane Smith with them.

 They were a great audience, and  the book hit all the right comic points. I think the most enjoyable part of the session for all of us was reading the True/False section at the back of the book. The kids enjoyed having the jokes debunked, and learning that some of the facts in the book really were true. I really recommend reading this book to older kids who visit the library, especially if you're trying to break the ice and get to know them a little bit.
