BIRTHDAY BOOKS

Birthday books is a wonderful program that allows parents to donate a book to the school library in honor of their child's birthday. A book plate is placed in the front of the chosen book and they will be the first one to check out the book. This special book is placed in a "Birthday Books" section of the library and will later be integrated into the regular book shelves.

"I opened a book and in I strode

  Now nobody can find me.

I've left my chair, my house, my road,

My town, my world behind me.

I'm wearing the cloak, I've slipped on the ring,

I've swallowed the magic potion.

I've fought with a dragon, dined with a king

And dived in a bottomless ocean.

I've opened a book and made some friends.

And shared their tears and laughter

and followed their road with it's bumps and bends

to the happily ever after.

I finished my book and out I came.

The cloak can no longer hide me.

My chair and my house are just the same,

But I have a book inside me."


~Julia Donaldson
