Capstone Comic Contest

Capstone Comics was holding a contest for everyday heros.  I entered my school librarian. 

Here's that I had to say about her:

Our school librarian is really a superhero in disguise.  Behind her seemingly normal red hair and headband is someone with astonishing capabilities.
-She is able to shrink the world in an instant using Skype; connecting us with famous authors and students from around the world.
-She has superhuman communication skills using; e-mail, twitter, her blog, the school newsletter, website, & TV channel.
-She leaps over information hurdles with ease & has the ability to save the day with a click of the mouse.

I think you would agree, our school librarian is a superhero!

Our favorite eBooks, in StarWalk Kids Media, in MackinVIA.

This is Seymour Simon.  He is well known for his non-fiction books.  He has been writing for over 40 years.
