Real Men Read

We kicked off our annual "Real Men Read" program today in the library.  For the past several years, we've invited in guest male readers once a month to share a story with our 4th grade boys.  We've met some great new friends this way and have had a blast listening to many wonderful stories.  Our first reader this year was Mr. Manuel, our new superintendent.  Mr. Manuel told the boys about some of the things he likes to read regularly  and then read aloud the story "Best of Friends" from the collection Guys Read: Funny Business.

This year, for the first time, we also had a special guest reader (our very own Mrs. Babcock!) sharing a story with the girls.  She read about Athena from the book Not One Damsel in Distress: World Folktales for Strong Girls.

Thank you so much to Mr. Manuel and Mrs. Babcock for reading with us!
