The summer olympics were fun to watch this year. There were so many new sports added to it and of course the competition was great.
In the spring I ordered new junior non-fiction extreme sports books with the hope that maybe one day we could have someone coming out of Henning School that may compete in the Olympics. These books have QR codes in them, which make them interactive for our students. A few of these new books I will share with you this week.
The first featured book is on extreme skateboarding. In this book the reader learns about catching air on the skateboard, the history of skateboarding, what skateboarding looks like today and how to be safe while skateboarding. Many evenings we have skateboarders outside the library window in the school parking lot performing stunts. It really is a lot of fun to watch and the rider is getting exercise, while enjoying it.
The second featured book is on extreme snowboarding. This book has clear definitions for the terminology associated with snowboarding. The photos are bright and capture the tricks and moves of the snowboarders featured in them.
Three more books in this series are Extreme Sports BMX, Extreme Sports Skydiving, and Extreme Sports. These books will be on constant checkout in our library this year and I look forward to hearing what the students think of them.
Come on up to the Henning Public School library on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 3:30-5:30 p.m. following the school calendar and let us get you a cup of coffee or tea and help you pick out a great book to enjoy.
