We love this book at Cayley School!  A laugh-out-loud read-a-loud! Thanks Scholastic Book Fair!


‘Fatty Legs’ and ‘A Stranger at Home’ Book Talks


These Book Talks by Annick Press are really helpful tools for getting the most out of these excellent resources.  Highly recommended by the authors and by me:)

Fatty Legs Book Talk

A Stranger at Home




Fatty Legs: A True Story

Really grateful for the opportunity to hear Christy Jordan-Fenton and Margaret Pokiak-Fenton talk about their important work today.  Their story impacted me greatly when I first read it in 2010 and it continues to impact me today.  Read it!

The Book of Mistakes by Corinna Luyken

20171011_085212We loved this book at Cayley School!  This winsome illustrations and simple lyrical text communicated beautifully all the wonderful potential that might unfold all because of a ‘mistake’!

Karon Argue

smoochThis past week we had local illustrator/author Karon Argue in our Learning Commons with her first book The Smooch (available through her website or at Bearberry Lane in High River, AB).  Karon’s presentation of winsome illustrations and rhyming text were a true delight to the kids. Karon’s personal story poignantly models perseverance and the importance of community and team work, values wonderfully portrayed in The Smooch.  Karon is now legally blind and uses assistive technology to continue to produce her vibrant illustrations. She has 5 more books in the works!  Watch for them!

Stacks of books
