Palo Alto Teacher Librarian Patricia O. alerted me to an author tea at her elementary school. The Tea was an open house, with a focus on writing and celebration of student-made books. A parent created clever mini-cupcakes, topped with mini-newtons, enscribed with book titles.
Mini-newtons look a lot like mini-books, don't they?! Some of the book titles read: "GO DOG GO!", "Tao of Pooh", "White Fang", and "East of Eden". Remember this idea for your next book club meeting, and volunteer to provide refreshments. Or, consider this if you want to make an impression on your school site council, board, or legislators.
