Learning Library Manners with the Shelf Elf!
Of course, the children are always curious about him. He's very shy and only comes out when no people are around. He's really good at sewing (he used to work in a shoemaker's shop with his cousin, Skeeter), so he made a toy elf for us so we can see what he looks like and how tall he really is. Still, the children always have more questions for Skoob that the book doesn't answer, so we work together to write a letter to him. (Miss Lambert's class wrote theirs last Wednesday, and Mrs. Smith's class will be writing theirs this week.) I'm always interested to learn what each class wants to know about him, and I always learn something new when I read his responses! I'll let you know what he told our students when he writes back!
