The Distant Librarian

Hi Soaring Eagles! I have created this space as a place to come to hear some entertaining stories as well as discuss them just like we do in the library. I am also including some games you can play that focus on digital citizenship and CODING! If you need to contact me, my email is mansete@nv.ccsd.net.

This picture book shares the tale of Arfy, a homeless mutt who lives in a box in an alley. Arfy writes to every person on Butternut Street about what a great pet he'd make.

Battle of the Books! 

Let's play Battle of the Books!

Here's how you play!

First, click on each book cover and listen to each book. As you are listening, think about the characters, settings, plot, and solution. When you are finished with all three books, go and vote on which one you thought was the best. Next week, I will announce which one won Battle of the Books!

One thing I am missing right now is traveling! Did you know that Google Earth can take you virtually anywhere. It uses satellite imagery to grab, spin, pan, tilt and zoom down to any place on Earth. I challenge you to access Google Earth this week for a field trip to five amazing places around the World! When finished, try out the game Where on Google Earth is Carmen Sandiego? located in the search tab! Happy traveling.
