A photograph from ISU's annual banned book this year reading made it to the big time in the librarian world. Check out this link to the AL Focus, on the website of the American Library Association. You'll see a photo of Jacob and I after we both read at the reading sponsored by Milner Library. How fun to see such a grand photo! Thanks to Toni Tucker and staff for sending the photo to the ALA and organizing the reading.
I thought Jacob did a great job reading a selection from Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren. We had reviewed the possible books to read from and he chose a Junie B. book because we have had so much fun reading Barbara Park's books. Then Jacob's acting classes kicked in as he practiced ahead of time and worked on the timing (credit to TheatresCool and ISU's Creative Drama for kids). His mom and I are frequently amazed at his poise and confidence in performing.
Glad to see that Milner Library gets promoted on the ALA site -- kudos to them! Thanks to Milner for inviting both of us to read.
