To celebrate our third CLiF book giveaway, the first graders presented a fun story and song about books at our all-school Monday Morning Meeting on November 23rd. Then students cycled through the library to pick a forever book, the fourth of ten books they will get to choose and keep as part of our Year of the Book grant.
