With Kindergarten classes, we read Nana in the City, by Lauren Castillo, about a boy who fears the busy loud city where his Nana has moved until his Nana gives him a red cape to make him brave. Now the city is not so scary, in fact, in a brave cape, the city is wonderful! We tried it! Here are the brave things our students can do wearing their brave red cape!

I am the Library Media Center director at Patton School in Arlington Heights where I help students from kindergarten through 5th grade find terrific independent reading for enjoyment and information, and teach students the skills to use information and technology safely and productively and to connect, communicate and share with others. I have four grown children, a large black dog, (flat coat retriever) and a small striped cat. I am an obessive Chicago Cubs fan and I love to run.
