Our school is lucky to have a teacher librarian that brings not only a passion for books and technology, but also a true love of working with children. Last week I had a student in kindergarten make a purple purse. I assumed that she had read a Kevin Henkes book about this topic, but it turned out she had never heard of it! I called down to the library to ask Mrs. Redford if we might borrow a copy of the book for the enrichment class period. Not only did Mrs. Redford rush the book down, but she also stayed with our class and read---giving up her teacher planning time to share her love of books with us! Students were overjoyed to have her visit our class (and so was I)!
