Morgan Plunge

Favorite Book: "I'm on the Cover!"

Mrs. Moninger (11-12 English teacher) and Mr. Neth (5th grade teacher) are starting to make a wall in the library. This wall is going the have “The One” on it. They will slowly add books to the wall with series of books that get kids that normally don’t like reading end up really liking.

The first book that they are adding to the wall is “Wings of Fire” by Tui Sutherland. Tui has lots of books for the Wings of Fire series and she has more books under another name Erin Hunter. These books she writes with other people that is the reason that there is so many more of those series. The first student that Mrs. Moninger noticed getting into this series was Ivy Tullis (6th grader). When Mrs. Moninger noticed her getting into this book series she got to thinking about having a wall with series of books that have interested people. 

Mrs. Moninger recommends any students that gets really into a book series to tell her and Mr. Neth about it so that Mr. Neth can take a picture of the student and Photoshop them onto the cover of the book. These teachers are having School House Graphic Productions out of Arnold Public Schools make a piece to one wall in the library so that they can put up Mr. Neth’s pictures and the title of the book up on the wall so that kids that usually don’t get into books have a way to get into them.
