I have not been "promoting" my blog at all, but a colleague of mine just happened to notice the new web address attached to my social media accounts and took a peek. She is the first person to actually tell me that she found it! Well what a delight to learn that she loves it! She was complementary of the color scheme, remarking that it reminded her of her "beloved Fiestaware" dishes!!! If you don't know the dishes, here you go...
In the course of talking about the blog, she also gave me a fantastic suggestion that prompted this post. She mentioned the Pharrell Williams' song "Happy," which I love...and most kids do too! Here is the video if you've been under a rock and have not heard it...
Then, she went one step further and told me about the Pharrell Williams' Happy BOOK!!! You read that right, the book! I did not know the book existed.
How delightful this book is! And won't the kids be happy when I tell them that they are now the first students in The Happy Library at our wonderful school?! I just wish I could find someone to make me the neon "happy" sign that is on the cover to use in our library, now wouldn't that be fabulous?!
So, thank you to the one and only, very fabulous librarian and story-teller extraordinaire, Miss Melissa Cairns of Fairyland Elementary School!
Thanks to her gift of encouragement, one of my very first lessons of the school year will be about The Happy Library and we may even have a little dance party too. I think the kids will LOVE that.
