It Was Books...

I had a long discussion with 6th graders about novels today. Reading a novel about a problem you deal with can be incredibly comforting to a child. Knowing you're not the only one facing something helps, even if the characters are fictional.

@LibraryLady So true. It's often really hard to relate to others' experiences (like me, I never understood what it might be like to have divorced parents until I read a few books with narrators who's parents were divorcing). It's a great way to gain that empathy
@timeturnerjones, I had a student ask why would anyone want to read about, say, an alcoholic parent. We discussed how it could either help a kid who had to deal with that situation, or it could help someone who didn't know what it was like to have empathy for someone who did deal with it every day.
So true! I know that when I book resonates with me on a really personal I'm-going-through-this-to level, I get even more into it!

All-Time Best Movie Adaptations Based on Books
We all are big fans of movies and cinema, whether it is Bollywood content or Hollywood. Every year, we get to see some of the best movies ever made which win our hearts. We have higher expectations from movies that are adapted from some world-famous books. This hangs us on a thread as it made us think which one was better – movie adaptation or the original book? Well, it works both ways. People who are dedicated readers and read regularly prefer books over movies, and those who have a hard time reading books, enjoy movies more than anything! In this article, I’ll be listing down all-time best movie adaptations based on books. · The Color Purple (1985) ‘The Color Purple’ is written by a famous American novelist Alice Walker and its stellar adaptation is created by Steven Spielberg. This adaptation has done good justice and is extremely faithful to the original novel in terms of characters as well as the plot. Celie’s inner thoughts and emotions have become lively through the phenomenal performance of the cast, which is a great achievement for Steven Spielberg. Hence, it becomes a must-watch movie. · The Remains of the Day (1993) ‘The Remains of the Day’ is a beautiful novel by Kazuo Ishiguro and its adaptation is created by James Ivory. This story revolves around the character study which is told from an English butler named Stevens’ point of view. All the characters are presented in equal length throughout the film and all of these are rooted in the point of view of the protagonist Stevens. Although the ending of the movie is less hopeful and arguably tragic than the actual novel, it doesn’t feel left out and restrained with the whole story. Hence becoming a must-watch. · Forrest Gump (1994) Well, this one is my favorite from the list. ‘Forrest Gump’ is a novel by Winston Groom and its adaptation is created by Robert Zemeckis. This movie has won six Oscars in all, including the one for the Best Picture. The streamlined character is beautifully portrayed by Tom Hanks. This movie has taken strong source material and the result is in front of our eyes. Every viewer of this movie finds it charming as well as fill with wisdom. This makes this movie a must-watch in all senses. · Harry Potter (2002-2011) ‘Harry Potter’ is a novel series written by J. K. Rowling. It comprises various genres like Magical Realism, Adventure Fiction, Mystery, High Fantasy, Thriller, etc. This 8-films long movie series is directed by 4 directors namely Chris Columbus (Part 1 & 2), Alfonso Cuaron (Part 3), Mike Newell (Part 4), and David Yates (Parts 5 to 8). The movie adaptations have done complete justice to the novels, although the makers of the movie had to narrow down the story quite a bit. But we can surely say that these are the ideal adaptations for the fans who are looking for incredible content. So, it is a must-watch too. If you are looking forward to buying these books you can check out TrueGether, which is the best eBay alternative out there.
Raising Sharp Readers
Here's an excellent article by Colby and Aliana Sharp, about how they are raising their three (soon to be four) children as readers. Colby is a founding member of The Nerdy Book Club, and I've followed his blog for years, but this insight into how he and his wife foster a love of reading at home provides great tips to share with parents. I've always believed surrounding children with books makes it inevitable that they will explore them, even if they can't read them yet. Corralling them on a single bookcase means books are easier to overlook. Remember, books are competing in most houses for attention. Leave them everywhere--they're not clutter, they're decor:) Be a reader yourself. One of my friends, an avid reader and book reviewer, remembers her mother stirring a pot with a book in her hand. Dinner was often overcooked, but reading was established as something very important! For some of us, local bookstores are a thing of the past, but the internet can allow you to connect your child with authors, keep up to date on new releases, and yes, seek out those elusive author visits, even if you have to drive a bit. Other tips that Colby and Aliana share include giving books as gifts (that's all I send my nieces and nephews. Scour the end of the year best book lists if you're not familiar with new children's books, or give classics that you enjoyed.) Also, frequent visits to the library to ensure you have a great selection--our library allows unlimited checkouts, and I love seeing a child carrying a large sack of books out the door. While you're at the library, be sure to explore all there is on offer--let your children pick out CDs or videos, play with puzzles or toys, etc. Our library has an outdoor space connected to the children's library. Believe me, creating positive memories about the library don't just have to involve books, but they will get kids back in the door when they're older! There are several other interesting tips in this article, so be sure to read it in its entirety, then share with parents with young ones.

National Library Workers Day!
Hey guys! This isn't a holiday most people know about but its SO IMPORTANT! It's National Library Workers Day! Alright so you might not be thinking this is a huge deal BUT librarians, library technicians, and library aides all around the world (right this very second!) are helping someone learn something new, discover a new world, and best of all, to fall in love with reading. If that isn't enough for you - Why you should love libraries: 1. Libraries serve a vital social service by helping bridge social gaps. No matter what your background is, if you have access to a library, you have access to literacy and computer training. They give you resources to learn as well as people to teach you! 2. Libraries have been around for 5,000 years. They contain a TON of info as well as trained people to help you find whatever you're looking for. 3. Libraries can act as safe havens for students at school. For those with anxiety or for those who do not feel comfortable around their peers, the library is a peaceful escape. 4. Libraries provide support for job seekers via free access to the internet to search for and respond to job applications, and by helping them to improve their employability skills. Among a thousand reasons why you should be proud of library workers, I'm especially fond of this day because my mom is a public school library tech! She worked at the elementary and middle school levels and has been changing kids lives for almost a decade! (Actually, maybe more than a decade?!) It was her dream job since she was little and even though it took her a while, she finally got her own library :) Look! She's even holding a ridiculously large book as a small child! She is never without a book in her hand, car, or purse haha! (But really that's a bible my grandpa had to swear on to become fire chief, but that's besides the point) Also, my mom has a Tardis in her school library. PLUS! She puts in the extra effort to keep her library up with the times. That means focusing part of the small budget on graphic novels since that has proven to be the best way to get middle school boys excited about reading. Or focusing on responsible internet use, how to do research on and offline, and of course, how to find the books you won't want to put down! So if you see or know someone who works or volunteers in a library, thank them for everything they do!
