Looking Back at Reading Month

Photo by Allison Shaw
The sweet sheep treats pictured here are just part of the wonderful things I experienced during March, known as Reading Month to schools and libraries. They're from elementary schools in Bowling Green, Ohio, where I met staff and students who had decked the halls with sheep, decorated T-shirts, read a lot, and written a lot.

I heard great questions in Potterville, Spring Lake, Ypsilanti, Webberville, Marion (Ohio), and Ravenna, where Beechnau Elementary School had activities for family night on the theme of "Shoot for the stars--read!" The sheep were happy to Blast Off! at family night, and I checked out the Planet Walk and art projects, and got my picture taken as an astronaut.

The Wood County District Public Library in Bowling Green, also full of wonderful art projects, welcomed me for a family program, which they previewed in Connect Magazine. Thanks to the Youth Services staff, shown here:
