In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

Styling Librarian: Hong Kong Transition: Week 7

This past week was quite distracting with numerous events, projects, and books pulling me in various directions.

The professional highlight of the week was attending Stephen Krashen’s presentation on The Power of Reading. It was quite wonderful to hear concrete examples verifying everything that I believe and have put to practice professionally… I appreciated Dianne McKenzie’s post on her Library Grits blog about his presentation- I could not put it better so: http://librarygrits.blogspot.hk/2012/09/learning-from-master.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed:+blogspot/zLvwr+(Library+Grits)

Learned this week about another bookstore I wanted to visit: Page One – Bookstore in Causeway Bay… In a huge mall- Times Square. It was a fascinating place to go. I made three videos of my search for picture books and exploration around the children’s book area and additionally took a few pictures… Here you go:

I begin my search for picture books and am baffled by the large amount of Mr. Men books (why not display picture books there and have the other Mr. Men book display? I really do not know…

A little giddy excitement when I found John Green books: (Go Nerdfighters!)

I recommend a few favorite books and reveal my pick for Caldecott 2013:

 

Here’s another installment of the school library tour, not getting done quickly, I admit it, but taking my time… Shall get to the rest of the non fiction area next week: This time- fiction and series– I actually am knee deep in weeding the 800-900 section of the library now that I’m done with 300-400’s. I am happy to be plowing through some amazing poetry books and additionally am happy to be making space so that we can shift biographies to be next to non-fiction and at the same time will make room for early readers/early chapter books where biographies are presently… I admit it, I’m a little nutty about reorganization and weeding. I enjoy adding quality, updated books to the library but also really love having things organized in a consistent, easy to find manner.

Thanks to Sarah Ducharme’s Try Curiosity Book Love post, I really enjoyed this video w/Sesame Street’s Martians Discovering a Book– hope everyone discovers a wonderful book treasure this week!

Here are books from the displays at Page One – some interesting new releases:

Thank you so very much for all the support – keeps me going, honestly!!
