Happy Halloween from the Schlegel Elementary library

30 Oct

I have the good fortune to work with a very creative librarian at Schlegel Road Elementary School. Jamie Palmer is passionate about picture books, and reads at least one every day to her classes, from pre-K to fifth grade.

To celebrate the joy of picture books, on the week leading up to Halloween every year she creates what she calls a “picture-book pumpkin” for each of those classes, depicting a character or characters from some of her favorite books.

I’m pleased to share this year’s crop of picture-book pumpkins with you. You might not be familiar with the books,  but I think you’ll appreciate the creativity.
