BOOK TALK / THE SUMMER VACATION FROM THE BLACK LAGOON ‚Äď Hubie has waited months for school to be out, and the day is finally here!! YAY! But‚Ķ now what‚Ķ? All of his friends are away at camp. Maybe he needs a project? Maybe he should get a job? Maybe he could run a lemonade stand? (Whoa‚Ķ much easier said than done!) Hubie keeps hitting road blocks, but he‚Äôd better come up with an idea soon or summer is going to be a total BUMMER!

BOOK TALK / THE NIGHT BEFORE SUMMER VACATION ‚Äď Don‚Äôt let the title fool you‚Ķ this story isn‚Äôt about school letting out for the summer. Instead, it‚Äôs all about a family working together to pack their SUV for a summer vacation camping trip. Everybody pitches in and soon they‚Äôve remembered EVERYTHING‚Ķ oops‚Ķ almost! 

This story follows the familiar rhythm of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.

RESOURCE TALK / LIBRARY CART NAME TAGS Do you name your library book carts? Okay, granted that sounds kind of silly... BUT... our book trucks work hard all day hauling books to and fro -- I think they deserve a fun name! 

You could do something like... Dolly CARTon or SHELVE Silverstein. Maybe Clif Hanger? BOOKer T. Washington? Fully Booked or Mario CART? :)
 
This resource includes 32 name tag choices... and a blank one, too -- just in case you come up with a few fun names on your own! 

There's a link in my smart.bio, if you like to see more!

BOOK TALK / LIZZIE AND THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL ‚Äď Because Lizzie loves kindergarten (and her teacher) SO MUCH, she is devastated to find out that the last day has arrived ‚Äď and it‚Äôs only a half-day! Feeling upset, she leaves school at noon without even hugging her beloved Miss G good-bye! Later, she decides to circle back through the building to give that final hug after all. Good thing, too ‚Äď she might have missed out on a few summer surprises!

BOOKTALK / FLIP FLOPI : HOW A BOAT MADE FROM FLIP FLOPS IS HELPING TO SAVE THE OCEAN - This true story begins in Kenya as Juma heads off to fish with Babu Ali. As they get to the beach, Juma sees hundreds of multi-colored objects floating in the water and washed up on the sand. The flotsam includes many flip flops and other pieces of plastic waste. Feeling thankful that these pieces of trash didn't end up in the bellies of fish, Juma has the idea of racing the floating flip flops like little boats... but Babu Ali -- a boat-builder by trade --has a bigger goal in mind! With the entire community pitching in, they build an ambassador for cleaner oceans everywhere!

This story reminds me of One Plastic Bag by Isatou Seesay and her spirit of innovation to make the world a better place! 

Did you know that National Flip Flop Day is May 31st? See the May Newsletter for Elementary Librarians (in my linktree) for more details!
