5 Brand New e-books!

February 24, 2010
Sylvan Dell has added 5 new e-books to our Peebles grant!
I just got the notice this morning and took a moment out to enjoy
Panda's Earthquake Escape. I feel certain your family will enjoy this story about two Pandas in a reserve who are frightened during an earthquake. They wander far from home and are missing their routines, their keepers, and the bamboo that is disappearing from the wild.
Lots of great extensions here with information about earthquake magnitude and the Giant Pandas themselves. Very timely with both the earthquake in Puerto Rico and the return of one of the D.C. Pandas to China this month.
Other new titles Felina's New Home, Little Red Bat, What's the Difference? and Newton and Me.
Access these titles from home through your 'access code' that was provided in the fall. If you have misplaced this code, simply email me and I will get it to you quickly!
By the way, we would love to have your family comments on which one you felt was extra-special!

HITS! We have HITS!

A Sylvan Dell ‘web traffic’ report indicates that hits have occurred 558 times since September 28, 2009, which shows good usage for the school! This wintery weekend might be the perfect time to share an e-book!

Maybe Phil has it all wrong...

Just perhaps the rotund rodent has his calendar mixed up, so I am dreaming of spring! Actually, even in the winter I enjoy looking at the bird feeder and observing those feathered critters. This months Sylvan Dell book , The Best Nest will help your child learn some great bird facts embedded in a retelling of a folk tale.
Hope to hear from you with your comments!
