Tom Sawyer Bulletin Board

I just had to show you what I and my sister have been working on. I work at our local library and all this month and thru the month of April it is  The Big Read. Across all states everyone is encourage to read  The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. I am in charge of the bulletin board in our children department and this is what I  and my sistercame up with. I couldn't of did it without her help.Image Hosting by
I love it. I have read Tom Sawyer while I was in school but that was years ago and so I refreshed my memory and reread it again and loved it. Boy Tom got himself into alot of trouble but he always manage to get himself out of it to.

I have worked at our local library for 3 years in the childrens department and I tell you I have had my eyes open to alot of things. We had a old fashion game night last night and the library closes at 9pm. Well we got ready to leave and there were 4 kids outside left with no parents around. They had been dropped off at the library and they were waiting  on there parents to come and pick them up. There parents knew the library closed at 9pm but they wasn't there to get them. 2 of the girls didn't even have coats on and it was getting down into the low 30's. We waited for 15 to 20 minutes and they finally showed up. Needless to say there was 4  of us waiting there with them and we were very angry that these kids were left there like that. It isn't a safe neighborhood. We sent a letter home stating that next time the cops would be called, no if and or buts.Sorry to go off on my little rant there but my kids don't get out of my site. I can't stand it when kids are just left like that. Kids are precious and we should treat them that way.

I hope that you will check out your local library and stop by and pick up copy of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and read it and share it with your kids.

God Bless
