SOCKTOPUS says...Get involved!
It is that time of year again! Time to get out there and get some socks donated for the homeless in your community. If you are wondering what this is all about, you take a look at the Official Socktober website to find out, or you can watch this great video by one of my favorite YouTube stars, Kid President.
I am fortunate being the librarian, since I can share this video and the purpose of Socktober with the whole school. Hopefully, we will collect a whole lot of socks for our community homeless shelters. We even have a district competition between a few of our schools to see who can bring in the most socks!
This year I have added Matt De La Pena's book, Last Stop on Market Street, to my presentation for 2nd and 3rd grades, since it is the perfect book about being a part of your community by giving back. As a bonus, it is on the nomination list for the Washington State Children's Choice Picture Book Award.
