PETE&C 2013

I just have to share this wallwisher from my sesson in iBook Author... just so you all can see what other teachers want to do with this Apple Software.

Sarah Heintzelman is the owner of this wall and was the leader of this session. She is from Centennial School of Lehigh University. She has seen people use this for portfolios as well as for digital storytelling. I can't wait to get started on my library skills iBook!

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

This month our librarian's book club is reading Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. I usually avoid this creepy kind of book but then I saw this trailer and all the comments. Everyone, or almost everyone said they enjoyed the book. And I must admit I did too until I got to the end... which is not really an ending but a jumping off place for a series! I am not sure who the actors are in this trailer but it is fun to watch. And, a movie is supposidly forthcoming (with different actors). According to comments on the Youtube video page, Tim Burton is directing the film version of the book but I don't know where that information came from. All I could find on was the film of the book is in development. Enjoy!
