The Book Fairy-Goddess The Book Bug: Share and Share Alike In the past couple of days I have gotten a few, very sweet emails from other teachers and Media Specialists about the ideas and programs I have shared here on The Book Bug. Although I do come up with a great deal of my own programs and ideas for the Media Center, I must admit that a few of the programs I am using in the Media Center are not 100% my original ideas. I have borrowed from some wonderful, more experienced Media Specialists and tweaked their ideas into my version of their original. An idea which I have borrowed (or maybe maintained is the correct word for it) for the Media Center is Honor Books. Mrs. Honor Books are not library books. I don't keep up with who has them. Honor books are great for students who are repeatedly loosing library books and for students who have way overdue books. One of my most successful project this year was also inspired by another Media Specialist. The books in this section are in alphabetical order by the series title. Hope you enjoy!

"Oh, Vinegar, Vinegar!" But Mr. "But what about the furniture?" "I will take the door of the house with me, lovey," quoth Mr. Mrs. Well, they walked all day long, but not a brass farthing did they make, and when night fell they found themselves in a dark, thick forest. "Don't alarm yourself, lovey," he said. So he climbed the tree, fixed the door, and Mrs. Now in the very middle of the night, just as he was beginning to nod, what should happen but that a band of robbers should meet beneath that very tree in order to divide their spoils. "Don't shake so!" "I'm not shaking, lovey," whispered back Mr. Then Mrs. My goodness! "Now, Vinegar!"
