READING REALLY ROCKS!

READING REALLY ROCKS!

Hi Guys,

My friend Book man is here to talk to you.

Hi there fellow readers.  If there is one really good habit that we should have, it the habit of reading. The Library is the best place to be.  If you go to the library, you’ll see people sitting reading the newspapers and even magazines. You’ll see people buying older books and even videos to take home and watch.  

Now you might say, but I have an iPad or a tablet or a cell phone.  THAT’S GREAT! You can read on your tablet and phone, too.  I know one thing for sure.  Whatever you do, and even if you are at home, take your phone and pull up a story, download it and read it.  Guys, remember reading opens up the world to you.  So, LET’S ROCK!

FUN AT SCHOOL CHECKLIST

FUN AT SCHOOL CHECKLIST

cartoon of children at libraryWow! The summer is almost over, and in a few weeks, school will be back in session.  Now, I know that some might be saying, “Awww… I don’t want to go back to school right now. I’M HAVING TOO MUCH FUN!  That’s great that you have had a fun time for the months you’ve been away from school.  In fact, you should be ready to go back to school because remember, school is fun, too!

 

At school you can:

  • See your friends you may not have seen during the summer
  • Get into that after school club you’ve been wanting to get into
  • Join the football, baseball, soccer, track, tennis, and more teams
  • Help make school a better place by volunteering to clean up around the outside of your school
  • Become a member of the student council at school, helping the voice of the students to be heard
  • Volunteer to read to the kids in the school Library
  • Help plan the next school grounds events

I mean there are so many fun and wonderful things you can do at school. So, now look forward to going back to school.  You’ll have fun there, too.  Oh yes, and remember read a book about 20 minutes every day. The world opens up to anyone who reads a book!

Talk to you later.

DO YOU HAVE A GOOD CAUSE?

DO YOU HAVE A GOOD CAUSE?

Hi Guys, 

It’s me Jenny. Whew… it has been a very busy first month and a half of the new year. But it has been fun, too. I’ve been writing another Junior Rabbit book for all of you to get and read.  But I want to ask you about something today.

Is there something that you really feel excited about? I means something that makes you want to do a good deed for others. I read an article one time and there was a young girl, about your ages, and along with her mother they went out into the streets and gave people who don’t have anywhere to live, the homeless, things to use. They gave them combs and soap and toothpaste and toothbrushes and small towels to help themselves out. What that young girl did is called “A Cause.” The definition of this kind of cause is: “the reason or motive for some human action.”  In the case of the young girl giving out toiletries to homeless persons, her reason was to help ease their pain and make them feel just a little better until they can get back on their feet. Wow! that young girl was brave and caring, wasn’t she?  Look at her video below.

Well, I know that you, too, have a cause or something exciting to do for someone else. Have you ever thought of going to the library and reading to a group of younger children? Have you ever considered becoming a great friend to a special needs boy or girl? Have you ever thrown a party for an older person who is alone?  Those are just a few of the causes you can think about. Hey, but you might have your own cause. Do that with the help of mom and dad. I am sure you’ll make this world just a little better. I got confidence in you. 

Okay guys, I’ll check with you next time. If you have a cause please let me know about it. I want to feature it on my blog. Let’s do our part. Oh yes, and when you’re tired of that video game or when you finish your chores and have time, keep it simple and read a book.

Jenny

Hi Guys,

It’s me Jenny. I have been so busy, but I wanted to stop and say Happy New  Year to all of you. I have a book coming out soon. Junior Rabbit Travels to Pennsylvania. I told you about it before, I think. But, anyway. I want to know if you all are doing your best in school and I really want to know if you all are reading and making trips to the Library. Remember what I told you before, “Reading opens up the world to you.”  So, let’s get reading.

I’ll talk to you again real soon. Here’s a picture of my new book cover.

I’ll let you know when to get it.  Let’s excel in school, reading, friendship, chores, and being a nice person to other kids.

Jenny

CHECKIN’ IN

Hi Guys,

Well, I had to check in with you and with your parents right now. For many of you, school has been in since September 5, 2017; so that’s about 2-1/2 to 3 weeks. How’s it going? Are you getting your study habits back? Do you have all of your school supplies? Are you practicing your favorite sport? Are you still reading? Is your library card current?

Remember, reading opens the world to you. I have so much to share with you and your parents this semester. I want to hear from you and your parents some good tips that I can share on this blog and I want to hear of all your accomplishments in school. Maybe you can share a picture with me so that I can feature it on my blog. 

What you do can inspire some other students to do their best. So, here’s to a great school year!

Jenny

QUILTING!

QUILTING!

Hello guys,

Well, it’s me again. I have a little time and I wanted to let you all know that while I am finishing up my new book on Junior Rabbit, I also had some time to complete a project that is near and dear to me—QUILTING. I love doing projects, especially ones  where I get to use my hands. I love quilting. I just wanted to share with you all that I completed a couple of quilts this summer. You can see one of them below.  

In the first picture, you see a picture of my grandson. In the other picture you can see photos of different people. See, I told you that if you want to there are so many other things that you can discover by reading. I bet if you went to the library right now, you can find a book on quilting and get all kinds of ideas for quilts. So, get to the library this weekend if you can. The world is waiting to be discovered there at the library. Until next time….

Hi Guys,

Easter bunny lookingBoy, oh boy! It has been a while since I was able to talk to you guys. But I want you to know that I’ve had a time, keeping up with my friend Junior Rabbit.  He’s on the go right now. I have to find out where he is because he’s been traveling. You’ll find out, too, in a couple of months where his first adventure will be. 

 

 

Now remember guys, it’s Summer and there’s so much fun to be had. You’ll be visiting friends in different states, going to the park and amusements parks, having barbeques, swimming, bike riding, scooter riding and so much more.

Just don’t forget that while you’re having all of that fun, there’s a world of fun to be had at the Library. At the Library you can get a book about origami and how to make figures, you can even become the hero in a far away country. You can help others who don’t have what you have. You know that your little brothers and sisters and you little cousins and nieces and nephews will love to have you read Junior Rabbit to them and even Loony the Loon to them. baby reading a bookThey will laugh at the funny sounds you make while they imagine the story you are reading to them. So, let’s be sure that reading a book a day is on our list of fun things to do this Summer.
