Teresa Funke, author of the Home-Front Heroes Series, visited our school today! She discussed her books with us and shared her life as an author. She also talked a little bit about history, and World War II, which is what her series is based around. She shared some wonderful slides about the children during that time, and what their life might have been like.
The kids were fascinated with all of her stories, especially when she shared her box of rejection letters, explaining...never give up! Teresa generously donated a set of her books to the library, and another 21 books for the kids to earn in a writing contest. Good luck kids, the writing contest should be a lot of fun, and I'm looking forward to reading all your stories. And THANK YOU Mrs. Funke for an awesome afternoon!

Inspired by the topic of her books, I set out a display of World War II genre books for the kids to enjoy, until they can earn one of the Home-Front Heroes Series books. I plan to add more WWII memorabilia tomorrow, including some of my family's war ration books and some old photos, so please be sure to stop in our library this week and check it out! If World War II isn't your thing, you can check out our Thanksgiving display and our Makers Space Theme for the month: Learn To Draw! There's something for everyone at the Stove Prairie Library! See you in the halls!
I will be blogging about our weekly adventures in Media and Technology, so be sure to visit often! We're always doing something cool! :)
