We have great news! Along with the recommended books, we have DVDs and VCDs for loan in the school library. Borrow the DVD player from our school librarian, and the DVD or VCD you wish to watch. A headset is available as well, so that you can watch the movie without disturbing anybody else.
The DVD player is quite easy to set up. Currently, we have Bridge to Terabithia, The Kite Runner, and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants II. The movies are extremely nice. The first two are very touching, while the Sisterhood addresses some of the problems teenagers face. The girls are moving on to college and they have a different set of problems.
Why don’t you do a movie review? Most of the recommended books are borrowed out, but we have other new books as well. There are books such as Walkabout, about an aborigine boy in Australia who has to walk alone in the Australian wilderness to become a man, Caroline by Neil Gaiman and some others. We’ll post more reviews of them in the future. In the mean time, do comment on the books.
