    I just read Stone fox by John Reynolds Gardiner .The genre of this novel was realistic fiction . It was a story filled with determination. An example of is when little Willy harvested the crops by hand to try to make grandfather feel better.In my opinion,the book was fascinating because I wanted to know why grandfather was sick in the first place,and if little Willy would win the race. The lesson I learned was if you want to do something for someone you have to be determined. If I could ask the author anything,I would ask him to write a second book and tell me if grandfather got better or if he stayed the same after little Willy won the race.

    I just read Stone Fox by John Gardiner. The genre of this novel was realistic fiction. It was a story about a little boy that was determined and brave. An example of this was when he didn’t care what they told him in the race. He harvested the potatos by himself. In my opinion, the book was a very sad book because his grandfather was ill and the little boy was helping his grandfather. The lesson I learned was tell what you need right now because you won’t have it later. If I could ask the author anything, I would ask why the grandfather didn’t pay the bills for ten years.

This is a picture of me my first year in the library, which was (06-07). My daughter drew it so if you look closely there are a couple of signs that say “MOM”, and if you look real close I’m wearing a badge that says Centeno Librarian. The question marks in the background and the expression on my face allude to a sense of confusion, aptly so, it was my first year and it was a little overwhelming. Now it’s my fifth year and I’ve decided to keep this anime likeness because one; I’ve grown so found of it, two, the job is still overwhelming, and three, now that I’m in the “Lucha Libro”, like El Santo, I have to conceal my true identity.

This will be my 11th year in education. I spent my first year teaching 5th grade reading then made the move to a self-contained 3rd grade taksroom, I mean classroom. Now that I’m in the library I think I have found my calling. I think I was meant to be “La Bibliotecaria”. I’ve always loved reading children’s books and YA literature and I was one of those kids who always raised their hand to read aloud in class. Now I get to do it for a living and in front of a captive audience! Plus, I actually get to work with people I like – kids.

Interests: books, cats, fashion, exercise
