Another wonderful find?? Susan Jeffers', My Chincoteague Pony. First of all, Susan Jeffers is another author/illustrator that you absolutely CAN NOT go wrong with. But this story is amazing - it is a true story of a little girl that wants her own pony. (Every little girl's dream!!) It is touching, it is one you will be recommending over and over. AND I LOVE the ending - it is one of those wonderful - pay-it-forward stories. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

In honor of the olympics, there is a great contest going on - have to say - I am entering even though I ALREADY own the book - I think our library needs a copy!!! I purchased this at Barnes and Noble last Friday night at midnight - it is just a wonderful book on Chinese culture and other things "Chinese" - it will be great for our Harvest Moon Festival, New Year's Celebration, and China unit studies.
Go HERE to enter!!
It's Done!!! I fininshed Breaking Dawn last night. I stood in line at midnight to buy it, started it on the way home, and have been reading WHEN I CAN ever since. I must say it didn't disappoint me - even with the hoopla that I've been reading about it. I think she wrapped it up nicely and it settled lots of things for me. Thanks Meyers for a great series - you made me branch out - I've never read in the vampire genre before!!!

Yes, I was one of the only adults in line at midnight to get THIS!!! But I didn't care - I considered it "for the job" - what we don't do as librarians!! I stood in line with teenage girls dressed in prom and wedding dresses and screamed every five minutes until midnight! And then I read all the way home!! So that's all the post for today - must go read some more!!
See what happens at midnight?!?!?!?
