Author Joe Brown Visits Libby!
Libby Loves Joe! Joe Brown, author of the Marceau children's series, visited the second grade February 19 for a reading of his latest book, Water For All. Brown stressed the importance of imagination in writing, and students created a fantasy story on the spot. Each child and parent received a personal copy of Water for All, and an exciting shared experience.


Joe Brown, author of the Marceau adventure series, visited Libby second grade classes to read from his newest book and share original artwork. In conjunction with Joe's upcoming appearance on Chanel 7's Windy City Live, Scholastic will make a book donation of 80 books to Libby.

Libby is Gifted with Books
Thanks to the generosity of students, parents, staff and the Parent-Teacher Organization at Glencoe West School, Libby will added hundreds of exciting, new books to its libraries!

Fly Guy, Junie B. Jones, Bad Kitty, Tokoyopop, Captain Underpants, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, David and the Hunger Games are just a few of new titles that were picked straight from the shelves at that school's Scholastic Book Fair.


You've asked for them, and thanks to the kindness of Glencoe West,
coordinated by Scholastic, we got 'em!
