Wordless Wednesday, August 5, 2009

The beginning of school is still 3 more weeks away for me.
However, I thought I would share a couple of books I use in the beginning of the year.
My Librarian is a Camel: How Books Are Brought to Children Around the World, by Margaret Ruurs, always generates a lot of laughter, but also excellent questions and discussion.
Students discover that not all children have the abundant access to books that they are accustomed to. Imagine the surprise when students see how a library can be more than a building and in some cases move by camel, boat, elephant and even wheelbarrows.




A true Wordless Wednesday, I think this photo speaks for itself.

This is amazing. I saw something similar like this one but a novel. It's called The Camel Bookmobile. I almost bought the book but didn't.
