Dragons Love Tacos

This past week we read Dragons Love Tacos written by Adam Rubin , illustrated by Daniel Salmieri.  This was a fun book to read aloud and I could tell that they were able to predict what was going to happen after the dragons eat the tacos, so I acted like I was afraid to turn the page, prior to revealing the result.

After reading the book, I talked about how they could check out the book later in the year. Since they might not remember the author’s name they would need to search for it on the catalog. Our library lesson this week was to learn how to find the call# of a book using the catalog .  The call# tells them the section of the library that the book is located (E= Easy Picture, F=Fiction Chapter, # = Nonfiction) and the first three letters of the author’s last name. They then searched the catalog by a title and filled out a CAT slip with the author’s name (Last name, First name) and call# (in red letters) .
