  5. Awww, Maggie's signature is adorable. You got an amazing batch of books. Are you planning on putting any in the classroom library? (I'm incredibly curious about classroom libraries.)

    And I love the weekly owl update. I always think of you now when I see owl stuff!

    Happy reading.

  6. I get most of my owl stuff at Barnes and Noble, Target or places like Michaels. I also find tons on Etsy.com!

    Katie- about 98% of my books go into my classroom library. Some don't because, as a teacher, they aren't ones that are appropriate to have out for 7th graders.
