Decatur's On the Same Page book is last year's Newbery Honor winner, El Deafo, by Cece Bell. This book has been a favorite with F.AVE students since we got it, and it is never in the library for longer than a few minutes before it is snatched up. We are excited to all read this wonderful autobiographical story of a girl growing up profoundly deaf and learning how to fit in and celebrate her "different-ness."
There is much, much more happening in Decatur this fall too! See below for just a few of the highlights from the Little Shop of Stories webpage. Our Newbery Book Club is excited to read The One and Only Ivan this month, then end it with Katherine Applegate's author visit!
