Celebrating 10 Years of Humphrey!!!

Celebrating Humphrey book display

Author Betty G. Birney’s Humphrey books have reached their tenth year of publication! These delightful little hamster tales have received multiple book awards and are loved by many. Come take out a Humphrey book and color on a Humphrey picture at our activity table.

If your child loves Humphrey they may love the fun activities on this web site: http://bettybirney.com/humphreyville.html

You can send a Humphrey postcard to a friend, adopt Humphrey as a classroom pet or play a hamster game! You can even “like” Humphrey on Facebook! There are also resources for teachers to use such as teacher guides to engage with students.

Birthday Books Bring Blessings!!!

Birthday Books Bulletin Board


Since it is always someone’s birthday, we are displaying a new Birthday Theme on our bulletin board.  The author, Garrison Keillor, said: “A book is a gift you can open again and again”. We have put on display selected birthday books for your enjoyment! Perhaps it is your birthday, or maybe it is a friend’s birthday and you want to see how other people (or even other creatures) celebrate birthdays. Birthdays are a fun time to show someone how special they are and how thankful we are that they were born.  

“Be happy! Today is the day you were brought into this world to be a blessing and inspiration to the people around you! You are a wonderful person. May you be given more birthdays to fulfill all of your dreams.”
