Thanks to everyone who emailed me with a question for Mandy Hager. I have sent them away to her and will share her responses when they arrive :)
Our November book is "Wonder" by RJ Palacio.
Check out her website and watch the "Wonder" book trailer!
She has very kindly agreed to answer our questions as well, so start Emailing them to me anytime or share them in the comments.
Looking forward to our discussion!

As we steam toward the end of the year it is worth considering any new social media tools you might use to communicate with your school community in 2013.
If you have been wanting to start using text messaging to communicate with students and parents you will find the following 'Cool Tools' article from the School Library Journal useful.

At Scots we are running a reading challenge over the summer - so we hope that will mean a gazillion books go out of the library ………………
We also have a morning tea for staff in the library at the end of the year, and threaten them with awful futures if they don't take out at least 5 books each. Some are remarkably hard to train :) but we persist………

How is the reading going?
I am still drinking extra water to combat the dehydration because this beautiful book has made me just a little bit leaky. In fact, it is very possible that my new nickname in the neighbourhood is "That Lady Who Cries on the Bus."
(This is, arguably, an upgrade from my old nickname of "That Lady With the Insane Dogs That Keep Pulling Her into Fences.")
I do not want to say too much this week, in case people haven't finished yet, so this will be a short post with NO SPOILERS.
